(OPEN):
45-PERCENT OF U-S FAMILIES NOW HAVE AN EMERGENCY-PREPAREDNESS KIT AT HOME--ACCORDING TO A NEW SURVEY THAT WAS CONDUCTED ON BEHALF OF G-E GENERATOR SYSTEMS, FOR THIS YEAR'S "NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH" [SEPTEMBER].  THAT'S A BIG INCREASE FROM LAST YEAR'S FIGURE, OF 36-PERCENT.  ALSO, THE SURVEY FINDS THAT 75-PERCENT OF FAMILIES TALK TO THEIR CHILDREN ABOUT WHAT TO DO IN A POWER-OUTAGE; THAT'S UP FROM 73-PERCENT, IN 2011.  AMANDA GRANDY IS WITH BRIGGS AND STRATTON--THE EXCLUSIVE-LICENSEE OF G-E GENERATOR SYSTEMS...

(GRANDY):
"PROPERLY PREPARING FOR AN EMERGENCY-SITUATION, BEFORE IT OCCURS, GOES A LONG WAY TO HELPING PARENTS--AND THEIR CHILDREN--STAY SAFE.  ACCORDING TO THIS YEAR'S SURVEY, MANY MORE FAMILIES HAVE AN EMERGENCY-PREPAREDNESS KIT AT HOME--AND AN INCREASING MAJORITY TALK TO THEIR CHILDREN ABOUT WHAT TO DO IN A POWER-OUTAGE.  HOWEVER, THERE'S STILL PLENTY OF ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT, ON BOTH COUNTS--AND WE HOPE THAT FAMILIES ARE INSPIRED, DURING 'NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH', TO START PLANNING AND PREPARING FOR EMERGENCIES.
"

(CLOSE):
FEMA'S "READY CAMPAIGN" URGES ALL FAMILIES TO HAVE BOTH AN EMERGENCY-PREPAREDNESS KIT, AND AN EMERGENCY FAMILY-COMMUNICATIONS PLAN, IN PLACE.  FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT "FACEBOOK"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"G-E-GENERATOR-SYSTEMS".
