Preparing for Emergency

Public stations, in return for the privilege of being broadcasters, owe a special responsibility to the communities they serve in times of crisis. SAFER is a resource to help make every public station a trusted source of information in emergencies.

On this site we've created and assembled the resources you need to develop a readiness plan. We've drawn from the experiences of many in public media who have lived through local disasters and provided critical life-saving service throughout. No matter what size your station or how limited your resources, whether you're just getting started on your plan or you're stuck in the middle, you'll find step-by-step guidelines, tools and best practices to help you get ready.

For all public stations large and small, rural and urban, being properly positioned for future emergencies depends on the planning you do today. Starting now.
