Get Ready, America: The National Hurricane Survival Initiative
October 24, 2012 www.hurricanesafety.org |
This year marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most destructive storms ever to make landfall in North America: Hurricane Andrew. “Get Ready, America! The National Hurricane Survival Initiative” will look back on the devastation wrought by Andrew in 1992, the lessons learned since then, and what you need to know and do to stay safe before, during and after hurricane season. The Salvation Army is proud to partner with with Ron Sachs Communications and other partners to bring you this important video message about hurricane safety and preparedness.
