From September 11th to the flooding in Colorado, the events of the last dozen years have made it clear that family preparedness for any disaster is of vast importance. While no one wants to think about the possibility of a disaster striking at home, knowing what to do during crucial early hours and having the right tools available can greatly improve your odds of weathering the storm, whether natural or manmade.
Disaster preparedness involves not only stockpiling the supplies you need to get through several days without support, but also teaching your family what to do in the case of an emergency and maintaining communication in the face of chaos.
With host Jimmy Johnson, the Leading Edge team will team with industry leaders to educate on what each family needs to do to prepare for a disaster and what tools are important in any emergency situation. The Series will also explore the many options available for disaster preparedness, ranging from an evacuation plan to escape your city to a shelter-in-place plan with supplies and protective gear.
The Leading Edge series is distributed directly to Public Television stations across the United States, and isn't distributed through PBS or any other affiliated entity.
