  • Emergency weather preparedness

  • The one item that many say helped them through these disasters was being prepared. What does being prepared actually mean? Do you know what you need to do to be prepared? Have you discussed being prepared with your entire family? These are just some of the questions that may be on your mind right now.

  • Weather can be really scary, especially when you listen to all of the news reports and see the pictures coming in from the tornadoes in Oklahoma, Missouri and other areas that are getting hit hard from various weather disasters.
    The one item that many say helped them through these disasters was being prepared.  What does being prepared actually mean?  Do you know what you need to do to be prepared?  Have you discussed being prepared with your entire family?  These are just some of the questions that may be on your mind right now.  
    What would you do if there was a tornado here in Watonwan County?  Where are you supposed to go if it hits?  What if you are on the road, or in another town or state?
    Adults, youth, families and community residents are invited to learn how to be prepared and get these questions answered and more at a community preparedness information session at the Watonwan County Library, on Wednesday, June 12, 2013, starting at 7 p.m.  This session is being sponsored by Watonwan County Emergency Management. For questions contact Julie A. Peterson at 375-5841.
    Part of being prepared is knowing what to do, where to go and how to stay safe!
