Notes to broadcasters
A variety of radio programs can be prepared to help rural people prevent, prepare for and recover from disasters. This package has covered just a few of the important issues, but there are many more that can be added to complete your programming. Following are some sample messages to convey to listeners about disaster mitigation and recovery. Included with each one is an example of a story that can be used to convey that message. We encourage you to develop other stories or dramas that illustrate these and other important messages.
>Messages: Everyone has a responsibility to protect themselves and their families in the event of disasters. Be prepared. Keep a family survival kit in your home. Include food, water, candles, and first aid supplies.
