Public Service Announcements

Ordinary Heroes is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) developed by the HPPD initiative in 2006. The PSA features Richard Webb and Kathleen Anderson who were ham radio operators in New Orleans and volunteered their services to contact emergency services personnel when the city's phone service was interrupted after Hurricane Katrina. During the disaster, Richard and Kathleen drove to New Orleans from their home 30 miles away and stayed to help others in need rather than evacuating to save themselves. The PSA depicts two productive members of their community who demonstrated courage and integrity in a time when heroes were hard to find.
