It is important to prepare for possible disasters and other emergencies. Natural and human caused disasters can strike at any time, are you ready?
According to Federal Emergency Management Agency, 97 major disasters were declared in 2011. Storms from Hurricane Irene, which battered the U.S. East Coast, to the spring tornadoes which brought devastation from Wisconsin to Texas. Now is the time to think about basic needs you, your family and your pets will need in advance of an emergency; how will you communicate, what supplies you need to keep in your home, car or office. The more you know about what to do in an emergency, the more confident and secure you will feel in your abilities to manage through a disaster.
Mary Stikeleather-Piorunek, Emergency Management Director for Lapeer County will present vital information for your family’s health and survival after a natural disaster or other emergency including basic techniques such as disinfecting drinking water.
If you have a weather radio to warn you of possible emergencies, but are not sure how to program it, please bring it with you, and you will be assisted in getting it working.
Ms. Stikeleather-Piorunek will also be providing valuable, possible life saving printed information and door prizes to attendees.
