Office of Emergency Management (OEM) Commissioner Joseph F. Bruno, FEMA Deputy Administrator Richard Serino, Fire Department (FDNY) Commissioner Salvatore Cassano, Police Department (NYPD) Assistant Chief Harry J. Wedin, The Advertising Council Campaign Manager Jessica Dahl, American Red Cross in Greater New York Chief Administrative Officer Richard Kane, and Counsel to Brooklyn Borough President Jason Otaño today kicked off National Preparedness Month by encouraging New Yorkers to audition for an upcoming TV public service advertisement (PSA). OEM and NYC TV set up a video booth at a preparedness fair at Brooklyn Borough Hall today, and will encourage passersby to share their thoughts about emergency preparedness on camera. Footage from the shoot will be used to create a series of local PSAs, which will be featured online later this month through OEM’s website and YouTube page, and later this year in taxi cabs and on TV.
