Severe weather and other emergency situations can come up with little to no warning. Knowing what to do and having a plan can mean the difference between life and death. Keep you and your family prepared by having a plan and practicing emergency drills regularly. Even securing your household and financial documents can save you from a big headache at very least.
The Emergency Preparedness Fair is designed to help you get the knowledge you need and connect you to local resources. The professionals set up at the fair are very informative and offer life-saving tips and advice. Show up, have fun, get prepared and meet some great people!
Check out the Emergency Preparedness Fair's FB page for more details about the fair. Admission is free and there will be door prizes, so be sure to stop by this Saturday, April 22 from 10-2!
