The group that designed the campaign, the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, says the first thing they discovered was that people didn’t want to deal with the possibility of another terrorist attack.
Leslie Chapman Henderson with the alliance said, "Not only did people not really have a plan in place for terrorism and not think about preparedness, they really didn’t even want to talk about it. I’m not sure anybody here would be surprised to hear that. Now the initial findings were they didn’t want to think about it, talk about it or ‘go there.’"
The new campaign urges Floridians to have a disaster supply kit with food, water, medicines and other essentials.
Family members should also be told who to call in an emergency and where to rendezvous after an evacuation.
