P.R.E.P. Workshop

P.R.E.P.On July 13, 2012, MSU C-CERT coordinated its first annual Personal Readiness and Emergency Preparation (P.R.E.P.) workshop to over 130 participants from the MSU, Starkville, and Oktibbeha County communities.  The one-day program covered a wide variety of breakout sessions focusing on development of disaster preparedness kits and communication plans, basic first aid skills, local preparation and recovery resources, evacuation planning, animal care in times of emergency, and caring for special populations in times of emergency.  Additionally, a keynote speaker addressed extreme weather events and best practices during inclement weather and a disaster preparedness expert panel fielded questions from the audience.
