Updated Silly Timmy comic strip templates: Translate for your community!

I am adding an updated set of Silly Timmy comic strips with all episodes, plus copies of blank ones to be translated into local languages. If you download either the PowerPoint you can see the original English and then  using >Insert> Textbox  

You should be able to the translate. Please keep the text the same though as it is important and the material is accurate as far as outs current understanding of responding to hazards is. Thank you!

Updated PowerPoint for Episode 1-15>>

PowerPoint for Episodes 16-30>> 

Silly_Timmy_comic_Ep_31-52_and_blank_templates_for_translation.pptx

Below is an example of an original and a blank speech one. You can translate the original text and then using Insert> 
   Textbox>

           You will be able to then have a Silly Timmy disaster comic for your region and language!

Once it is complete, share with me and I will be able to create jpegs in Photoshop and e-mail them back to you!

UPDATE for 2017: I am including three more PowerPoint presentations with the blank versions FLIPPEd so that translation can take place in languages that read from right to left, such as Arabic, Farsi, Pushtoo etc! Hope fully this will help spread Silly Timmy Disaster preparedness further!
