This is video number three of a seven part series designed to educate the public regarding steps they can take before disaster strikes.
The videos were produced by the Metropolitan Emergency Managers Committee, a regional forum for emergency managers and response agencies from cities and counties around the Kansas City region. MEMC members made a conscious decision to use humor to share important information in a fun, non-threatening way. “We want people to understand the risks, but we don’t want to scare anyone,” said Mike Baughman, co-chair of the MEMC’s Citizen Readiness Subcommittee. “We hope that everyone, even children, can not only enjoy these videos, but also learn some key lessons from them.”
