Blog Post 1 Crisis: QuakeKare.com
I ran into a website called QuakeKare.com that I chose for the disaster website blog. I originally only found gag disaster photos and goofy websites. After finding QuakeKare I am convinced that even I can survive 2012.
I like that this site immediately takes you to the “3 Steps to Emergency Preparedness”. I also thought the name was catchy and definitely caught my eye. The clash of both K’s in Quake and Kare are rough like a disaster is hitting the website title. The menu is easy to read and organize on a left side column, which seems appropriate.
For ALL Locations and Disasters is the heading on the front page. That pretty much covers Everything.
Number One: Buy Kits and Supplies
Number Two: Make a Plan
Number Three: Stay Informed
The website information follows the emergency preparedness experts guide and is organized according to those categories. The Kits and Supplies section includes survival kits, emergency kits, and emergency supplies including for pets and terrorism and pets and terrorism again, respectively. The make a plan section takes you to a list of disasters and places to chose from in which the third option for preparedness is Terrorism. The stay informed section includes recent News about disasters in which Obama’s face graces the cover of a New Jersey relief effort. It also showcases the “Featured Disaster Preparedness Article that lays out a National Earth Earthquake Preparedness Drill. There is also a newsletter which can be signed up for.
If I’m ever in an Earthquake, I’m immediately logging onto QuakeKare.com!
