National What Month?

OK, so you may not have noticed between election mania and fiscal implosions, but National Preparedness Month is almost over. Part of the reason you may not have noticed, ironically, is that so many of the country’s preparedness soldiers were too busy dealing with actual hurricanes to do PR about future hurricanes.
Right before things got out of hand, the Red Cross was nice enough to come visit my office and chat with me about the book. You can see some of our conversation here.
