Resolve To Be Ready: Get Prepared For Emergencies and Enter to Win Target Giftcard & Starter Emergency Kit!


Emergency kit giveaway

Earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, blizzards, fires, and other disasters happen all the time. We can’t always avert disaster, but we can be as prepared as possible.  No matter where you live, the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) wants you to be educated and ready for if and when disaster strikes. OEM would like to encourage people to Resolve to be Ready this year, and prepare themselves for an emergency by taking three steps:  Make a Plan, Get a Kit, Be Informed.

On OEM’s Facebook page you can find more information and even take the first step in making a plan by selecting and sharing your own meeting place using the Get Ready NYC: My Meeting Place Facebook application.  There are other great features on the OEM Facebook page, including downloading the Resolve to Be Ready preparation calendar. The calendar contains quarterly, monthly, and weekly reminders useful for everyone to help prepare them for emergencies, large and small, throughout the year. Facebook users can also submit photos on OEM’s Facebook page, showcasing how they are prepared for emergencies, obtain information on how to get your kids involved in preparing for an emergency, and watch videos for preparation tips.


OEM is giving one of my readers an emergency preparedness starter kit, which includes a $25 Target gift card, first aid kit, batteries, flashlight, and protein bars. This giveaway will run until Tuesday, January 25th and is open to U.S. residents only.  Leave a comment below for one entry. For additional entries, please follow AYMB on twitter, “like” AYMB on Facebook, retweet this post, or post on your blog or Facebook page. You may leave an additional comment for each extra point of entry. I will select a winner on Wednesday, January 26th via

If there is only one resolution you make this year, it should be to get as prepared as possible should disaster strike. It could make all the difference in the world.
