“This Emergency Preparedness Fair is designed to help all our residents and business owners become familiar with the many aspects of safety and the importance of being prepared.” City of Conroe Communications Coordinator Victoria Endsley said. “From weather emergencies like floods and hurricanes to those less predictable, like hazardous material spills, fires or medical emergencies, it helps to know what to do when faced with these situations. Being prepared will empower our residents and businesses and lead to more positive outcomes.”
Numerous local emergency responders and response groups, non-profit agencies, and local businesses will be on hand to meet with the public. There will be several raffles throughout the event, demonstrations and response vehicle will also be on display. Volunteers will be on hand for residents who would like assistance signing up for Smart911. Smart911 allows individuals to create a secure safety profile for their household so Emergency Responders can then use this key information to help them faster and more efficiently.
