Hollywood actor encourages hurricane season preparation

Posted On Wed, April 28, 2010

Hurricane season officially begins on June 1, and actor Morgan Freeman wants residents in hurricane-prone communities to be fully prepared.

Ready, Set, PLAN!T was recently launched by The Great Hurricane Blowout as the first of a number of steps that can help residents prepare themselves, their families, and their communities for hurricane season. Morgan Freeman is one of the celebrity spokespeople for the the natural disaster preparedness campaign.

This social media campaign uses Twitter, Facebook, and community events to reach residents in hurricane-prone communities in hopes that they will implement their own hurricane plan. Leslie Chapman-Henderson, president and CEO of FLASH, a group of organizations that strengthens homes and safeguards families from natural and manmade disasters, said that "the first step in being prepared for hurricanes is to make sure your family is taken care of. Your evacuation routes, a list of important phone numbers, information about your insurance coverage; all of these things and more should be included in your plan."

One of the tools on the campaign's website will help families determine what their best preparedness plan should be. Families can also create a hurricane storm kit.ADNFCR-2297-ID-19749099-ADNFCR
