Family Emergency Preparedness Day

National Preparedness Month kicks off Thursday, Sept. 1. The Delaware Citizen Corps will sponsor its 7th Annual Family Emergency Preparedness Day at the Agriculture Museum in Dover on Saturday, October 8th, from 10:00AM - 2:00 PM.

The Museum is located on 866 N. DuPont Highway, in Dover. The day will provide residents with FREE FOOD, free training sessions on citizen emergency readiness, writing a plan and building a kit, emergency preparedness for pets, and preparedness games for kids. Exhibitors, such as Citizen Corps, the Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA), the Medical Reserve Corps, Public Health, the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and the Red Cross, will distribute materials listing supplies and tips on the key points of a family emergency plan. Local emergency responders, fire trucks, police vehicles, and more will be on hand. Many exhibitors will have interactive displays that all ages can enjoy, and free disaster preparedness/emergency kits will be raffled off.
