Another great day in Georgia talking about preparedness to various pros.
Special thanks to Glynn County (GA) EMA Director Jay Wiggins for hosting the class…
…and special thanks to Laura Ginn who coordinated efforts on behalf of everyone in City, County, and State of Georgia.
Glad to see so many participants here to learn but more importantly, share information and challenges and success stories they found within their community. Espically when it comes to senior care and supportive care – these issues need to be talked about openly and various members of family and staff need to be aware of challenges they may face when disaster strikes.
Aside from www.ready.gov program – there are a ton of other agencies to follow to ascertain great and trusted information.
- Glynn County Emergency Management Agency
- National Weather Service (NWS)
- Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA)
- Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
- National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC)
Remember, a short time ago, this entire area was hit by Hurricane Matthew with MANDATORY evacuations.
Building these kinds of relationships before a disaster can only strengthen our efforts in response and recovery.
Plus, it’s super awesome to hang with like-minded individuals who are so dedicated to preparedness.
Be safe peeps!
