Upcoming Congressional Briefing
Momentum is continuing to build for our BE Safe America / Congressional Briefing at the U. S. Capitol. We have now confirmed that joining us will be Senator Joe Manchin (WV) and Fire Caucus Chairman Congressman Rob Andrews (NJ)! With our CEO, Len Pagano, having just visited late last week with others [such as Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) personally] and outreach to many others involved in homeland security and disaster readiness and recovery, we’re expecting attendance to continue growing on both sides of the aisle in the Senate and House of Representatives.
You’ll want to be there from 4-6 pm on Tuesday, June 19th, 2012, when we’ll discuss:
- A new Zogby Survey (funded by Federal Signal) on apathy among Americans in protecting themselves
- Safe America’s efforts to launch our 4th annual nationwide preparedness ‘drill’
- Showcasing our ‘Text First. Talk Second™.’ message with a new TV spot by First Spouses… including Alabama First Lady Dianne Bentley and Puerto Rico First Lady Luce’ Vela
We’ll also introduce past and new partners such as the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL), NORC atthe University of Chicago, Federal Signal, IAEM, Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRI) and the Medical Reserve Corps - which will help us achieve our goal of having 2 million Americans participate in a readiness exercise during September (and October); and, how we will go about achieving our goal.
