Last week I flew down to Washington, D.C. to accept an award from the National Association of Government Communicators! Ready Girl won first place in the K -12 Educational Program category. It was an honor to get to meet such incredible people from all across the country who work every day to make our country safe and informed. I am very happy to have received this award on behalf of NYC Emergency Management.
While in D.C., I had some fun hanging out with my friends from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sharing ideas and stories about preparedness!
I also took a trip around town to visit each branch of government, including the White House, the Capitol Building and the Supreme Court.
After I travel, I like to review my emergency plan with my out-of-state contact. It’s always good to give them a call and review your plan so you and your family know what to do in an emergency. Be sure to have your out-of-state contact’s phone number and address written some place safe where you can always access it if you need to, such as your Go Bag.
Peace, stars and stripes,
