With two snow storms behind us, who knows what is to come. But after we witnessed how crippled NYC was after not being prepared for the first one, I’m sure we are all concerned with making sure we’re ready for whatever winter brings throws at us next.
Luckily, the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has created a cool Disaster Preparedness Starter Kit and has a kit to giveaway to one lucky BronxMama reader!
OEM would like to encourage New Yorkers to Resolve to be Ready this year, and prepare themsleves for an emergency by taking three steps: Make a Plan, Get a Kit, Be Informed. On OEM’s Facebook page you can find more information and even take the first step in making a plan by selecting and sharing your own meeting place using the Get Ready NYC: My Meeting Place Facebook application.
One lucky BronxMama reader will win: One “emergency preparation kit” consisting of a $25 Target gift card, flashlight, AA batteries, travel first aid kit, and protein bars.
To Enter: Become a “fan” of OEM or post a picture showcasing how you and your family are preparing for emergencies in the New Year on their wall then leave a comment below letting us know what you posted OR subscribe to BronxMama and leave a comment below!
Everyone can download the preparation calendar here.
Rules: Open to U.S Residents Only. While the prize is being provided to BronxMama, the thoughts and opinions in this posting are those of BronxMama.
