The Coffee County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), is hosting the 3rd annual "Emergency Preparedness Fair and Safety Saturday" September 6, 2014 at Johnny Henderson Park (Enterprise) 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  The Emergency Preparedness Fair and Safety Saturday is part of National Preparedness Month (September) which is a “whole community” approach to disaster response.  The fun-filled, family day event is designed to raise awareness about home safety and individual emergency preparedness.
The preparedness and safety event features several awareness displays and demonstrations to help citizens see how a few simple steps now can increase safety and emergency preparedness in homes, businesses and communities throughout the county.  Emergency response vehicles and resources, such as the mobile command post, hazardous materials vehicles and the Enterprise Fire Department’s “Fire Safety House” will be on site.
Free safety preparedness “how to” literature such as how to build an emergency supply kit and develop a family emergency communications plan will be distributed.  Information regarding fire safety and prevention as well as information on preparing for natural disasters such as floods and tornadoes will be available.  Upcoming training opportunities which promote community preparedness such as first aid, CPR and storm spotting classes will be announced.  We hope the residents of Coffee County will make the time to stop by with their families and take advantage of this fun learning opportunity.
As part of the month’s activities, EMA and CERT and Mitchell Hyundai are sponsoring a poster contest open to all children in grades 1-6 who live in Coffee County.  The theme for this year is “Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare!” focusing on taking simple, but potentially life-saving, steps to enhance preparedness.  


 

Updated information concerning the Poster Contest and/or the Preparedness Fair can be found on our website athttp://coffeecountycert.com/ …direct questions to admin@coffeecountycert.com .
