  1. I’m trying to link or embed the series of ARC videos that explain the “Get A Kit”, “Make a Plan”, “Stay Informed” from their Be Ready Cross Ready site.

    But the the ARC site is flash and doesn’t allow for direct linking or embedding!

    I love these videos – any suggestions on how to solve the situation???
