Marshall County EMA Director Clyde Avery said this is the time of year that we should be preparing for emergencies including natural disaster events and potential terrorist attacks and to take action to protect ourselves and our families.
With winter weather on its way and a hefty storm in our rear-views, now is the perfect time to create a home disaster kit if you haven’t already. To that end, Pulaski County EMA Director Larry Hoover has a number of tips.
The most important tip, Hoover said, is to make sure your family knows where to go in a severe storm. Lay out an emergency plan with a place to meet in case you get separated and designate an emergency contact that is out of the immediate area to call in case of a disaster.
