At the beginning of this year the mindset of preparedness has once again rearing its head in the mainstream media in a positive light, this time in the form of educational television programming geared towards children. Yep, you heard me right; the mainstream media is preaching the positive aspects of preparedness to our children!
Mighty Kids Media’s Danger Rangers® animated edutainment series, which “SuperEmpowers” children ages 4-8 years-old with the knowledge to take on life’s challenges, will teach viewers the importance of emergency preparedness and paying attention to rules in this week’s episode.
It is good that the message of preparedness is being presented to our children, and I would really like to see more programming like this that is aimed at adult audiences as well. There are some public service type announcements that I have seen aired on the subject, but something more substantial is really needed to promote the preparedness lifestyle to the American public.
Incidents like the Fukushima disaster after the tsunami swamped the reactor complex really brought the reality of how one disaster can trigger another into sharp focus for many in the US and brought back the memories of the damage that Katrina did when it blew through the southeast US.
