Melania Trump sent a great reminder to Americans Wednesday that there are a handful of ways to best be prepared for disasters.

“Informative meeting with @FEMA today. With the hurricane season upon us, you can download the FEMA app https://www.fema.gov/mobile-app to start receiving alerts & safety reminders,” the first lady captioned her post Wednesday on Instagram, along with a link to the mobile Federal Emergency Management Agency app and several pictures from her visit to the agency’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The visit was Trump’s first public appearance since having kidney surgery to deal with a benign enbolism last month. She spent a week in the hospital at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and then spent the last few weeks recovering from the surgery at the White House. Her public absence lead to wide speculation in some media outlets.

On Monday, the first lady accompanied President Donald Trump at a dinner to honor Gold Star families at the White House.

“Tonight @POTUS & I were honored to pay tribute to our fallen heroes. Thank you to the Gold Star families that joined us in celebration & remembrance,” FLOTUS captioned her post along with a few pictures of the special evening.
