FEMA encourages Americans to Resolve to be Ready in 2013.


The emphasis of this year's Ready campaign includes integrating technology into individual's, families' and businesses' preparedness plans. Research has shown that nearly 55 percent of mobile phone owners in the United States own smartphones. As a simple resolution, Ready is asking all smartphone owners to turn the technology in their purses and pockets into a life-saving tool during and after an emergency or disaster.


The Resolve 2B Ready 2013 Toolkit contains information and instruction on how you can integrate technology into your emergency plans.
