Emergency Preparedness: 2 Part Series

(Part 1) What’s involved in preparing for emergencies and disasters? And why should I do anything to prepare? Join us at the Greenwood Library on Tuesday, April 16 @5:30 where these questions and more will be discussed during this interactive presentation. Participants will learn about the importance of personal risk analysis, the important differences between preparing to shelter in place vs. evacuating and resources and information to assemble a personal “go-bag” and a personal kit for sheltering in place. All participants will receive a go-bag that they can fill at home.

This program is designed to increase Sussex County residents’ understanding of management of emergencies and disasters and to promote readiness and foster a confidence in Sussex County residents.

 

 

Part 2) Where do you turn for information when emergencies and disasters are near? Who do you communicate with before, during and after those events? Join us on Tuesday, April 23 @ 5:30 at Greenwood Public Library for reliable information which is critically important when personal safety is at risk. This presentation will introduce participants to Smart911 and the Delaware Emergency Notification System (DENS) – both vital resources to stay informed. Resources will also include tools to help participants communicate with family, friends, and neighbors as events unfold and in the aftermath of emergencies and disasters.

This program is designed to increase Sussex County residents’ understanding of management of emergencies and disasters and to promote readiness and foster a confidence in Sussex County residents.
