NorCal Public Media is proud to present the first episode of a five-part series called Prepare Yourself! Together with the Sonoma County Department of Emergency Management, through a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency), NorCal has designed this series to give common sense advice about preparing for a natural disaster. The first episode centers on what you can do to protect yourself and your family in the aftermath of a flood emergency. Over the coming months, programs will feature information about Earthquakes and Tsunamis, Wildfires, and Neighborhood Preparedness.
This innovative series takes a unique approach to disaster preparation, with clever satire, entertaining skits, and original music. The programs draw inspiration from popular culture, media references, and sketch comedy. Prepare Yourself! is not
your typical public television program. Our hosts guide you through a half-hour of memorable moments that have fun, yet relay important information about home emergency kits, go-bag readiness, property protection, and how neighbors and com- munities can help each other during emergencies and evacuations. Tune in. Learn some great information. Have fun. And most importantly of all – Prepare Yourself!
