Are you prepared for any type of disaster?
Many on the east coast weren't prepared for the devastation of hurricane Sandy.
Do you have a meeting place to gather with family members during or after a disaster?
Do you know what documents and important items you should have in a grab and go bag?
Do you know what's available from your local municipalities in the form of disaster relief and what you need to be prepared for on your own?
If you would like to learn about getting prepared for any type of disaster this is the meeting to attend.
The local Lemont Emergency Management Agency (LEMA), Homer Glen & Downers Grove Emergency Management Agency professionals will help us understand what we need to do in the case of any type of disaster and what is available from our local municipalities.
