2009 Ready New York City Campaign

In September 2009, OEM launched a joint advertising campaign called Ready New York City with the American Red Cross of Greater New York and the Ad Council. Ready New York City is a public service advertising campaign designed to encourage New Yorkers to prepare for emergencies.

The campaign uses the metaphor "a disaster can turn your world upside down" and includes a television ad, a radio ad, and four print designs for newspapers, websites, and outdoor spaces such as bus shelters, kiosks, and billboards. The ads direct New Yorkers to the campaign's website, or in Spanish at to learn more about preparing for emergencies.
