In order to encourage Americans to prepare themselves, their families, and their communities, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in partnership with The Advertising Council, has sponsored public service advertisements (PSAs) that educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to all kinds of emergencies.

To view and download all of the Ready Campaign's PSAs, visit the Ad Council Web site www.psacentral.org.

“When the world starts falling apart, we have to go to work.” Patrol Sergeant Tiffany Larson evacuated citizens during the #CampFire last year as her house burned down. With wildfire conditions still affecting multiple states today, Be Ready by making your plan.

FEMA’s Ready Campaign and the Ad Council have joined with Sony Pictures to promote the critical message of emergency preparedness through a Public Service Advertising campaign tied to the film, “Zombieland: Double Tap.” Sony Pictures developed a PSA with original movie footage that has been running in theatres since the film’s release on Oct. 18. In the PSA, cast members describe what families should do now to prepare for disasters with the theme, “Zombies don’t plan ahead. You can. Make an emergency plan.”
