Get Ready For Family Preparedness Day
Back by popular demand, the Lapeer County Office of Emergency Management is once again hosting its Annual Family Preparedness Day on Saturday, September 13, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on the Courthouse Lawn in downtown Lapeer.
The goal of the program is to teach citizens how to take care of themselves for the first 72 hours after a large scale emergency or disaster. Lapeer County is susceptible to many kinds of emergencies and/or disasters. Some examples of past events include: winter storms, tornadoes, train derailments, power outages and hazardous material accidents.
In addition to a variety of emergency response vehicles, you will also be able to learn about fire extinguisher use, proper way to use sandbags, AED demonstrations, disaster trailer, 9-1-1, products to start your own disaster kit, pet information and weather radios just to name a few. This is also a great opportunity to meet with first responders from your community. In addition, you will have a chance to win some great door prizes. This is a day for the whole family, so come out, learn and get better prepared!
