ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Disasters can happen any time, and United Way met with other organizations to be better prepared to deal with those disasters.

The purpose of the workshop was to provide resources and information to south Georgia's non profit agencies and organizations so when a crisis happens, they will have a plan on how to offer services with minimal interruptions.

 "This year we're kind of doing a little bit of everything we're doing weather, we have the national weather service guy here, we've got public health they're here and talk about pan flu, we're going to do a little bit of business continuity planning we have boy scouts here they've going to do wound care," says United Way 211 Information and Referral Specialist Alicia Jackson.

The United Way hopes to make the workshop an annual event.
