"People need information as much as water, food, medicine or shelter. Information can save lives, livelihoods and resources." Quotes from the World Disasters Report 2005, released by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies http://www.ifrc.org/publicat/wdr2005/index.asp . Check out this report and note where a librarian's role would fit, or where a librarian could have helped. Send it to your library association lobbyist. Share it with your administrator. Give it to your local disaster preparedness council, along with your card.
