21/11/2013 - ABC Special-Worth Watching

ABC1 Catalyst disaster behaviour special – Sunday December 1 7.30pm

Please forward this information to your members and supporters and ask them to distribute as widely as possible.  The more people who watch this feature, the more Australians will understand disasters, and emergency agency education messages about “plans” will be thoroughly reinforced.  Feel free to place the video and attachment on your websites and encourage people to watch. The attachment and the Youtube are for you to use as you see fit.

ABC1 (TV) Catalyst program will be broadcasting a special feature on Sunday December 1 at 7.30 called “Dont Panic,” which uses live scenarios to demonstrate how people behave in disasters and why plans, and practicing plans, are so vital.

This major TV event was put together with the assistance of the BoM, NSW RFS, NSW SES, Dr Rob Gordon, Prof Sandy MacFarlane and some funding came from EMA.  The program will encourage people to go online to their local web sites to get a plan and fill it out. Please ensure your web site has the plan you prefer in a place that the viewers of this feature can quickly download.

I hope we make sure as many SES Volunteers as possible watch this major event.
