The Town of Smyrna along with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is teaming up for the 2016 PrepareAthon. America’s PrepareAthon! is a national, grassroots campaign to increase individual and community preparedness and strength through hazard-specific drills, group discussions, and exercises. Throughout the year, schools, universities, houses of worship, businesses, and civic organizations across the country are organizing PrepareAthon Days in their communities to discuss, practice, and train for relevant hazards. These events and activities often happen at times when disasters are most likely to occur, or in conjunction with existing events, or weather awareness weeks.
The Town of Smyrna hopes that this PrepareAthon will help citizens’ families, work places, schools, houses of worship and community organizations take the steps needed to be prepared in the event of a tornado and/or flood disaster. Emergency preparedness is every citizen’s responsibility.
Join us in the preparedness activity by signing up to receive information regarding tornadoes and/or floods and what you can do to be ready in the event of a tornado and/or flood disaster.
Please make sure to register, and let’s get ready for the Town of Smyrna’s Tornado PrepareAthon drill on April 8th at 10:00 AM!
