Update! This giveaway is closed! Congrats to Quinn.
This month is National Preparedness Month, if you didn’t know this you are more than likely not very prepared for a possible natural disaster. Don’t worry if you are not ready, you are not along, most people don’t believe that a disaster will hit close to home (unless you live in the gulf region). Yet, it is often when you are the least prepared when these things happened. Believe me, living in Connecticut you would never expect to have to be prepared for an earthquake, but in the last year we have had a couple. Even a simple thing like a loss of power doesn’t sound like too bad of a deal, but if you extended it over a couple of days or week it suddenly becomes a huge issue (another thing that happened in Connecticut).
It isn’t only Connecticut that is stressing preparedness, the Office of Emergency Management is asking NYC residents to sign up to Notify NYC, the city’s official emergency notification system, which will send subscribers a text message, email, phone call or tweet of important citywide events as well as localized notification based on their neighborhood. Notifications will be of severe weather, school closures, subway disruptions and traffic advisories all over the city.
If you are in the city and want to sign up go to nyc.gov/notifynyc or follow @notifynyc on twitter. To learn more about Notify NYC and the Office of Emergency Management, please check them out on Facebook or visit nyc.gov/oem.
In order to help you get prepared, we are having a sweepstakes for $50 to a National Home Improvement store (like Home Depot or Lowes) for purchasing home preparedness supplies.
All you have to do is leave a comment and let us know what you would do with the $50 gift certificate AND your e-mail in comment so I can easily contact you.
