BROOKLYN - Some Broadway stars are lending their talents to a new PSA campaign that focuses on being prepared for an emergency.

NYC Emergency Management and stars from the Broadway show "Disaster" teamed up for the public service announcement. Stars Seth Rudetsky and Baylee Littrell helped launch the campaign in Brooklyn. They met up with students from the Brooklyn High School of Arts and The Urban Assembly School.

Rudetsky said the show he stars in deals with a lot of natural disasters. He said New York has dealt with earthquakes and hurricanes as well as terrorism, so it's important to spread the word about how to be prepared.

The students learned the importance of having a "go" bag filled with necessities such as flashlights, batteries, clothes and phone chargers.
