This weekend at SGRA we’re presenting a special preparedness weekend or “preppers” events. Getting yourself, and your family, prepared for a disaster scenario is important, and while many people think of people preparing for the end of the world, there are many more local events that you might be caught unprepared for. Here in Connecticut the summer hurricane and October snow storm left thousands of people out of power and on their own for days, and even weeks. This emphasized the need to be prepared for emergency situations where you may be without power, without food, and even may be required to evacuate your home.
On Friday evening at 7:00pm we’re presenting a screening of the History Channel documentary “After Armageddon” which is a great program demonstrating helpful ways to be prepared for any type of disaster. Then, on Saturday from 2:00pm – 6:00pm we’ll be presenting a discussion in “Preparedness 101: Bug Out Bags” which will give tips and demonstrations on things to keep in a “bug out bag,” which is generally a pack containing first aid and other necessities that you can take with you quickly in the event of an emergency.
These programs are open to the public, and registration is not required.
