Are you ready for an emergency? Ice-Qube held a “Prep Party” at Zero Minus Plus at Fred Segal designed to increase awareness, as well as encourage all Californians, individuals, families and businesses to take action and prepare for emergencies.
Karl Champley, Australian master builder and TV personality was at the event to give tips on how to prepare for an emergency. Champley was given an award by Fire chief Carl Bjerke of Santa Monica for his efforts in joining forces with Dr Phil to help out victims of Hurricane Katrina. He has also hosted many Habitat for Humanity and Jimmy Carter workshop events around the country. Champley is a busy man and also host a show on the DIY Network and HGTV.
The owner of Zero Minus Plus, Darrylynn Kaun was also given an award for her support in September 2009 as National Preparedness Month.
On September 4, the White House issued a press release stating that President Obama declared September at National Prepardness Month.
“My Administration has made preparedness a top priority, and we are working every day to ensure our country stands ready to respond to any disaster or emergency -- from wildfires and hurricanes, to terrorist attacks and pandemic disease. Our goal is to ensure a more resilient Nation,” said the president.
