“When Disaster Strikes” Tour Begins Tuesday in Pulaski County

How prepared are you when disaster strikes?

Members of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, Emergency Management Office and the Pulaski County Health Department are presenting several information sessions in order to help you prepare for a disaster in your area.

Officials will be informing you on how to assemble a 72-hour kit, what “go bags” are and how to communicate with loved ones in a disaster. They will also demonstrate the operation of a generator in an emergency and basic field living skills.

Representatives from the sheriff’s department, EMA office and the health department will be on the road to present plans to you during their “When Disaster Strikes” tour. They will be at the Monterey Fire Station on Tuesday, April 16, the Medaryville Fire Station on Wednesday, April 17 and the Winamac Fire Station on Monday, April 22. Each session begins at 6 p.m. ET. Sessions will be held in Star City and Francesville at a later time.

If you need more information, call Sherry Fagner at the Pulaski County Health Department at (574) 946-6080.
