I think the message is very clear - in the event of an unexpected emergeancy, it's good to have a plan. It is. It is very useful. If you live in an
appartment, for example, and a fire were to break out - you and your family could get separated in the confusion. A plan would be where to go to exit
the building, and where to meet afterwards.
Or if you live in Tornado Valley, having an emergeancy plan for a tornado strike is useful.
Or if you live out on the west coast, an earthquake plan.
Basically, there's nothing subliminal about it. People face horrible situations every day (such as theft). An emergeancy plan DOES help, and so the
government/news tries to set up something that will reduce the costliness of these events, or to catch criminals, which is in turn good for the
economy, and good for their public support.
