Natural Disasters: Be Aware & Prepared
The library will be hosting 3 information sessions in August as part of a Girl Scout Gold Award project. Topics covered include: information about what to do on a general emergency basis (evacuate vs shelter in place, what to have at your house, etc.); what to do if one has pets; information that is disaster specific (what to do during hurricanes, blizzards/snowstorms, etc.); and information specific to senior citizens. Speakers include Det./Lt. Chris Bratus, Washington Township Police Department; Joe Rotola, US EPA Chief of Removal Action Branch, Superfund & Emergency Response Division; and Jeffrey Paul, Director of the Office of Emergency Management in Morris County. Sessions will be held at 7 p.m. on 8/12, 8/22, and 8/29. Registration is requested.
