Disaster Preparedness Presentation

On April 29th, Bob George, Delaware Citizen Corps and CERT Program Manager, gave a Disaster Preparedness Presentation to members of the Saint Polycarps Church in Smyrna. Marny McLee, Program Training and Outreach Coordinator, discussed the emergency supplies in the Citizen Corps' Disaster Kit Back Pack, which was given to each member who attended.  The kit consists of a NOAA Weather Alert Radio, first aid kit, flashlight, batteries, and Power Bars. Also included are a bottle of water (a gallon per person a day is needed during a disaster, for drinking and cleaning), solar blanket, dust mask, whistle, glow stick, cowhide gloves, and duct tape.
