PRESS RELEASE:    FUSIONpresents Emergency Preparedness Song, Expect It. Have You Prepared?

 

Wednesday, October 27, 2010 

 

The City of Port Coquitlam Emergency Program Officer, Cheryl Lalonde, has partnered with FUSIONpresents in the development of a song about Emergency Preparedness for Canadians in times of natural disaster. The song, entitled Expect It. Have You Prepared? revolves around the importance of being prepared and knowing the basics of what to do when disaster strikes.  The song will use earthquakes as the main example of a potential disaster, as earthquakes have the highest likelihood of occurrence in Canada. 

 

The song, now in its final recording and production stages, has been extremely well received and endorsed by the City of Port Coquitlam and will be featured during May Day Parades and other civic events. The song will also be showcased on the City of Port Coquitlam civic website and used during various educational Emergency Preparedness programs.

 

FUSIONpresents has also developed an Emergency Preparedness school package, including the lyrics, music, and an idea sheet on how to put on an Emergency Preparedness musical theatrical performance in school talent shows with the goal to raise awareness in the schools and local community.  All schools in Port Coquitlam will be receiving this educational package in January 2011.

 

In the effort to target all age groups from parents to teenagers to seniors to children, FUSIONpresents selected Port Coquitlam's own Kilmer Elementary School Choir, under the guidance of Kilmer music teacher, Mme. Lajeunesse, to participate in the project and sing a chorus on the final recording of the song.   FUSIONpresents artists Sami Ghawi, Nathalie Bernard and Daniel Yamamoto co-wrote the lyrics and performed the vocals on the song.

 

Expect It. Have You Prepared? will be available for streaming online on January 01, 2011 on the FUSIONpresents site and the City of Port Coquitlam's civic website.  The song will be available for download and purchase shortly thereafter.

 

Studies have shown that the general public is very apathetic towards natural disaster and how it could affect them.  As such, the purpose of this song project is to bring awareness and know-how to people and help them protect themselves against these very plausible threats.
