Information is power in today's world and even more so when working to reduce the risk of disasters, according to the UN Office for Disaster-Risk Reduction UNISDR.

When an earthquake or flood hits, a simple radio or televised message telling people where to go and what to do to stay safe can make a difference between life and death.

UNISDR is reaching out to the media in Central America and the Caribbean to encourage them to spread key messages about safety and prevention in times of emergencies.
