Visit www.disastereducation.org to download a copy of Talking about Disaster: Guide for Standard Messages, a publication produced by the National Disaster Education Coalition. The guide covers topics such as chemical accidents, earthquakes, drought, floods, hurricanes and more, and is designed to provide disaster safety information to the general public. Although produced primarily for a U.S. audience, much of the information is useful for emergency managers, disaster (natural and human-caused) educators, public affairs personnel, mitigation specialists, the media and communicators outside the U.S. as well.
