The Florida Division of Emergency Management Supports FLASH's "Great Hurricane Blowout"

The Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH)’s innovative “Great Hurricane Blowout” will promote a culture of hurricane-based preparedness in our state through fresh outreach methods. The final result of the program will help Floridians accomplish several objectives, including:

· Making a family plan
· Making a disaster supply kit
· Understanding safe cooking and sanitary practices without county and municipal utility services
· Passing time without electricity or the family’s ability to safely leave its home
· Mitigating the effects of storm damage on residences
· Training with various disaster-related non-profit organizations

You can help the Great Hurricane Blowout move Florida’s families “down the path to preparedness” by visiting http://www.greathurricaneblowout.org/ and pledging your support of the Blowout. Simply list your e-mail where indicated and while there, you can also learn the best practices to spread the word about the Great Hurricane Blowout through your social networking mentions via Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube. Help help spread the word about this great program by telling your friends, family and professional contacts about how the Great Hurricane Blowout is helping to ensure that all Floridians are safe during the 2010 Hurricane Season.
Join the Blowout and Breathe Easy!
