#RUREADY Blog Swarm!

Attention Blogger and Social Media Users,

Portlight Strategies, Inc wants to invade the internet with the importance of emergency preparedness and people with disabilities with the “R U Ready” media blitz. April 1st to April 7th. Portlight will use social media to spread awareness through blogs and status updates. Portlight is asking bloggers to blog about emergency preparedness and people with disabilities and then share your blog on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #ruready. Some examples of topics are:


- Families with children with disabilities

- Service animals and shelters

- How to shelter in place

- How to prepare for a disaster if you are dependent on equipment (vent, powerchair, etc..)

- Transportation during a disaster

- Alternative formats (braille, large print, ASL interpreter, etc..) in a disaster


During the week of the RUReady media blitz, we will all change our Facebook profile picture to the below graphic. We encourage everyone to do the same.
