Obama Urges Citizens to Consult Ready.gov in Preparation for Hurricane Sandy

 

As Hurricane Sandy approached the East Coast, President Barack Obama urged people to take all necessary precautions, recommending that people visit Ready.gov for information on how to prepare. Established in 2002 with a $3.8 million grant in the Sloan Foundation’s Biosecurity program, Ready is a national public service advertising (PSA) campaign to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies.
