Preparing for Godzilla

How do you prepare for a Godzilla attack?

Two weeks ago, we asked staff members at the Greater New York Red Cross how they would prepare for a Godzilla attack on NYC. Their answers formed the basis of our video, “How to Prepare for Godzilla.” The video (below) provides viewers with simple tips to prepare for any “Godzilla-size” disaster. We hope everyone who sees the video will take Red Cross emergency preparedness steps—Get a Kit, Make a Plan and Be Informed—which could save lives during a disaster. We’re happy to report that a number of media outlets picked up the video; all of them emphasized the importance of being prepared in advance of a disaster.  

Below is a clip from the CBS2 New York 5pm News on May 19: 

Here's an article from New York news website DNAinfo from May 18 discussing the video.

New York radio station 1010 WINS picked up the story and broadcast it on May 19 several times during rush hour. Below is one of the clips.
