Disaster Preparedness Week (October 21-28, 2019) encourages residents near the New Madrid Fault Line to take simple steps (through instructional pamphlets, videos, and staff appearances in schools and businesses) to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, schools, and communities. Residents will be taught how to put together their own personal Disaster Kit, as well as constructing an Emergency Plan with evacuation routes and personal contact list. Training will include care for the elderly, disabled, and family pets.
Limited Emergency Sheltering Assistance is available to Flood Victims. Please bring proof of residency (utility bill, rental/lease contract, tax bill) along with two forms of valid photo ID to our temporary recovery centers listed in the next few days on Twitter and Facebook.____________________________________________________
