Get Some Inexpensive Culture (& Prepare Your Family For An Emergency At Same Time) — NYC Offering Museum Discounts If You Fill Out A Family Communications Plan

I’m always on the lookout for clever preparedness ideas and have found one in my own backyard.

New York City’s Office of Emergency Management (NYC-OEM) has organized an interesting partnership with several museums. Any New Yorkers who visit the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the Museum of Art and Design, or the FDNY Fire Zone this week get a discount on admission if they fill out and present a completed emergency reference card.

I wish that there were more institutions involved and the discount was a bit bigger, but this is a great and imaginative start by NYC-OEM. What’s also nice is that museums and other cultural venues should be considered when selecting a meeting place as part of your disaster plan.

About Paul Simard

I was born in 1955. I discovered my first personal computer in 1977 while in the U.S.A.F. I was hooked, but loved them too much to turn them into a job at the time. Now, it seems a good time to do that, but on my terms. So, here we are. I'll be writing about computer builds, OS and software installations, configurations on all, as well as commenting about the obstacles met and how I overcome them.
