Nowadays there are all sorts of people out there giving out advice on how to survive. They come from all walks of life, preachers, educators, writers and housewives. Dose this makes them qualified in disaster preparedness? If you need to prepare for any type of emergency you want someone who has been in the field, have treated the wounded, given CPR, someone who knows what it means to be in a disaster.
Mr. Tim Howard has been in the Disaster Preparedness field since 1985. He has been involved with conflicts and disasters to include Panama invasion, Desert Storm, Desert Shield, 911 terrorist attacks, Iraq, Afghanistan, Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and tsunamis.
Tim’s career has taken him throughout the world. His experience and leadership has been called upon for some very important project. Within weeks after the 911 Attacks the US Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service, recruited him to help form the US Department of Homeland Security. Tim has been consulted by federal, state and local governments on matters of preparedness and safety. Mr. Howard currently uses his leadership as the Chairman of the Arizona Federal Health and Safety Council and is the President of the USA Emergency Broadcasting Network.
Mr. Howard developed the radio talk show Common Sense Preparedness not to increase fears, or sell a product, but to bring you reliable facts about disasters, Natural, man-made and personal. This non-political talk show became one of the top rated talk show about preparedness within 24 months. During Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Common Sense Preparedness was able to provide up to the minute emergency information to the general public and directly assisted over 12 families in the disaster area with information and communication links to other family members. Due to this incident Mr. Howard then turned his attention on developing an internet radio network that would be there to educate the general public about disasters and be able to bring government and non-government organizations together to provide up to the minute information during time of disasters.
USA Emergency Broadcasting Network is fast becoming the only reliable, variable disaster information source on the internet. Instead of covering items that are based in propaganda or fear, the network brings you information on how to manage a disaster for a family. Mr. Howard has been able to bring professional responders from all over the field, Law Enforcement, NOAA Storm Spotters, Government Officials, food safety professionals, firefighters and construction professionals to the radio network in order to give professional advice and education to the general public.
