Emergency Preparedness Month tips for artist resilience

Resources from NCAPER, others

The Hub is doing you a solid here in case you haven’t heard what’s happening at 2:20 p.m. ET today…

Basically, if your mobile phone or other cellular-enabled device or TV already gets emergency alerts (e.g. Amber Alerts), it should make that or a similar sound this afternoon. Just a test. Relax.

That said, and this is critical, if you are in a harmful situation and have a safety phone hidden away for dire emergencies, power it off between 2:15 and 3:30 p.m. today so as not to reveal it.

Emergency Preparedness Month is upon us, and the great folks at the National Coalition for Arts Preparedness and Emergency Response recently provided a solid blog post titled, “Strengthening Artists’ Resilience: A 4-Step Action Plan for Preparedness.” 

The post takes you through multiple steps so that you’re ready for whatever, whenever. (Basically, the point of emergency prep.) Take the time to look at it, save it, and be ready. There are still roughly two months left in hurricane season, and fire or flooding can occur anytime.

Be prepared.

Enjoy humming that tune the rest of the day. You’re welcome.
