TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Everyone should have a plan incase disaster strikes, that's the message FEMA and local emergency officials were trying to get out to Tift county residents on Saturday.
FEMA and the Tift County Emergency Operations held a community outreach at Lowe's to make sure people know what they need to prepare for a hurricane and any type of natural disaster.
They gave out pamphlets filled with information about having adequate food and water, and necessities like weather radios and batteries in case the power goes out.
"We're here with our state and local partners giving out information on any kind of storm preparedness. We have activity books for the children and anything that you would need for you and your family," said Diann Easterling, FEMA Comm. Relations Specialist.
FEMA says before this hurricane season becomes active there's no time like the present make a plan to keep your love ones safe.
