Orange County and News 96.5 encourages residents to “Keep Calm and Prepare” this hurricane season which begins June 1 by taking steps to be ready and reduce their risk of damage. Join us from 9am-5pm at the Central Florida Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 1st.
You can prepare during the 2013 Hurricane Expo. The free one-day event will offer preparedness information, live demonstrations and hands-on training at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. Free preparedness items like weather radios and first aid kits will be distributed while supplies last.
Attendees will learn from emergency response and recovery experts from the National Weather Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency who will answer questions and provide information on how to survive and deal with floods, high wind damage and property loss.
Participants will also learn how to “track” storms, pack a disaster kit, administer first aid, perform compression only CPR and prepare an emergency plan for their pets.
