Forget the flowers. Chocolate is so passé. Nothing says love like a reminder to wash your hands or replenish your emergency stockpile. Today, on this Valentine’s Day, send your sweetheart a “Get Ready” Valentine’s Day e-card instead. Created by APHA’s Get Ready campaign, these special e-cards are an innovative way to encourage your loved ones to prepare for an emergency – of course, while showing them how much you care.

Each card features a witty reminder about being prepared. One of the greetings reads, “This flu season, make sure love is the only thing in the air.”

“It doesn’t take a lot of time or money to get ready, but planning for an emergency now could save the life of someone you love in the future. What could be more romantic than that?” said Michelle Holshue, APHA’s Flu Near You fellow. “These e-valentines are a fun way to tell the people you care for ‘I love you enough to have a plan.’”

Take a look at the variety of e-cards, click on the image and send it to the people you love.
