Most Americans ignore terror-prep warnings

Government warnings this month prompted fewer then 10 percent of Americans to purchase supplies that might help them after a terrorist attack, says a USA Today/CN/Gallup Poll. The survey found that most people reported already having items like kits with three days of food and water, a radio with batteries, and first-aid supplies. A majority of Americans pronounce themselves unprepared for a terrorist attack, the survey reported. The new U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which is starting a multimillion dollar public relations campaign to urge precautions, says it is confident that more American will heed the advice as time passes.
