With hurricane season here, the IAFF has prepared a public safety toolkit to help educate members of your community about how to stay safe in the event of a hurricane.
While hurricanes don’t threaten every community, this public safety campaign can also be used to help educate your community about how to be ready for any natural disaster. This public safety toolkit on hurricane safety offers opportunities to generate positive publicity in your community and for your members.
Share the infographics and videos, along with a strong message (tag your friends in the media in any tweets to maximize your reach), on social media.
Send the op-ed and infographics to your local media. Be sure to follow-up with reporters and assignment editors to let them know you are available to discuss these important tips for ensuring safety when a hurricane threatens a community.
Media outlets are always in need of short, high-quality content. Providing a steady stream of quality content will help establish a solid, positive relationship with the public and local media to ensure they continue to look to their fire fighters for safety advice all year long.
