Lisa A first hand witness to thousands of homes and businesses damaged or destroyed by disasters, Sean Scott, a second generation building contractor specializing in disaster restoration, became aware that survivors were ill equipped to take the steps to recovery. Unaided, or misguided, disaster survivors struggle to successfully navigate the complex process, and so, The Red Guide to Recovery – Resource Handbook for Disaster Survivors was born. Used by fire departments, relief organizations, government agencies, and communities across the U.S., The Red Guide to Recovery helps countless people prepare for and recover from disaster events.

youth disaster preparednessThis is the second year of FEMA’s Youth Preparedness Council, and if you know someone who might be interested, they will be following in some impressive footsteps!

FEMA is looking for youth leaders who are dedicated to public service, who are making a difference in their communities, and who want to expand their impact as national advocates for youth disaster preparedness.

Any individual between the ages of 12 and 17 who is engaged in individual and community preparedness, or who has experienced a disaster that has motivated him or her to make a positive difference in his or her community, may apply to serve on the Youth Preparedness Council.

Participants are expected to represent the youth perspective on emergency preparedness and share information with their communities, and in July 2014, the member will attend the Youth Preparedness Council Summit along with a chaperone – travel expenses reimbursed!

Applications must be received by February 24, 2014, 11:59 p.m. EST
