Today we kick off National Preparedness Month all across the United States. The theme this year is “Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare.” We hope over the next month we will help provide and encourage some of those actions ensuring that you are better prepared if a disaster was to happen in your community.
TASK 1: Best “Pop Culture” Reference
Kicking this month off on Labor Day, we know many of you are enjoying a day off as a reward to working all year long. Knowing that may include watching a movie or two, and or listening to some music so why not share?
Do you have a favorite disaster movie or song that gloriously references the end of the world? Did you happen to catch “Sharknado 2″ and double over with laughter from the sites, references and cameos in the film?
While disasters are serious business, pop culture has tired to remind us that we need to keep our sense of humor. So we want to know… what do you think is the best “pop culture” reference to disasters in our current culture?
DAY 1 ACTIVITY:
1 Pt: Find and share something that shares your favorite pop culture use of emergencies or disaster. This could be a quote, link, picture, video or anything that you can show us that reveals your answer.
2 Pts: Want to get a couple extra points? Record your own version of your reference. Act it out, or create a song parody similar to those surrounding the movie ‘Frozen.”
