R U Ready?
Deer Lodge County Preparedness Event a True Community Affair
November 14, 2012
According to Barbara Andreozzi, Montana State University Extension- Deer Lodge County, you could hear a pin drop in the Anaconda High School Little Theater, as over 340 area residents listened to preparedness presentations from members of the Deer Lodge County preparedness and emergency response community.
The two hour open public forum brought together community members with area agencies involved in emergency and disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Speakers provided resources and information on the roles of emergency response agencies and personnel in the community and spoke about the importance of personal preparedness.
The forum was a bona fide community event. Event partners included: Disaster and Emergency Services personnel, county representatives, healthcare agencies and providers, area schools, correctional facilities, emergency services personnel, Job Corps, Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, local churches, and more.
The Deer Lodge County R U Ready event is a model for communities statewide. Check it out!
