After years of disaster preparedness education, only about 50% of the population has indicated they have engaged in some kind of preparedness activity. More must be done to reach and motivate people.
One method, not currently in widespread use, is to involve property management organizations in the preparedness process.
Property managers represent an administrative connection to buildings or communities and their residents, for which they provide services. They are a natural conduit for preparedness education and emrgency response education programs.
