Be Prepared & Aware

MRC volunteers will be going out into the community to deliver presentations on Family Emergency Preparedness. During the presentation we will answer the following questions: Are we in danger? Assessing our risks.

  • What are Disasters?
  • What is Terrorism?
  • What is a family disaster plan?
  • What do I need when I evacuate?
  • How do you shelter in place?
  • What if we have a panedmic influenza outbreak or an anthrax attack?
  • How can I help my community and others?

We would love to be able to visit your civic league, church, or organization. Please email us at Teresa.Blakeslee@vdh.virginia.gov to schedule a presentation.
