FEMA Releases PrepTalk: “Storytelling to Promote Action”

Today, FEMA released “Storytelling to Promote Action”. In their PrepTalk, The Big One Podcast team shares why they developed “The Big One: Your Survival Guide” podcast, which features stories about people in Southern California preparing for the possibility of a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that could occur within the next 30 years. 

The Big One Podcast Team is comprised of the 89.3 KPCC Southern California Public Radio team.  This includes host, Jacob Margolis; producers, Arwen Champion Nicks and Misha Euceph; and manager, Megan Garvey. Listen in as they discuss how to tell stories that compel people to prepare for disasters.

The PrepTalk video and additional resources are available on the FEMA website. Additional PrepTalks from the April 2019 symposium in Santa Rosa, Calif. will be released in the coming months.

PrepTalks are a partnership between FEMA, the International Association of Emergency Managers, the National Emergency Management Association, the National Homeland Security Consortium, and the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security.
