Event in Room: Room #237

Please join us for this free Lunchtime Learning session presented by Acadia Lifelong Learning.

We are all responsible for emergency preparedness and it is important to fully understand the key principles of Emergency Preparedness: • Know the Risks • Make a Plan • Get a Kit This presentation will provide you with the background information necessary to be better prepared for any future emergency or disaster. If an emergency happens in your community, it may take emergency first responders some time to reach you. Therefore, we should all be prepared to take care of ourselves and our families for a minimum of 72 hours.
