Officials urge disaster preparedness

February 21, 2003

Albany- Officials from GEMA, Albany-Dougherty County EMA, Albany Fire Department, and the Red Cross held a Severe Weather Awareness Week Expo to help you plan for natural disasters.

They say you need to prepare a disaster kit before severe storms strike.

Your disaster kit should have blankets, water, batteries, non-perishable food, insurance information, first aid kit, and matches.

Officials urge you to have enough food, water, and supplies for each family member for a 72 hour period.
