Chicago Emergency Preparedness Workshop This Wednesday

For all my Chicago readers, City of Chicago public safety agencies are hosting an emergency preparedness workshop for residents this Wednesday. From the City’s website:

As part of its National Preparedness Month activities, the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) will partner with the Chicago Police Department and Chicago Fire Department to host a personal preparedness workshop for Chicago residents on Wednesday, September 28, 2011.

The workshop, “Are You Prepared?” will take place from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Chicago Cultural Center, Gar Hall. It is free to the public, and no RSVP is required.

“This workshop is an opportunity for Chicago residents to receive important information on how to be prepared to handle emergency situations at home, at work and on the go,” said Gary W. Schenkel, OEMC Executive Director. In addition to providing information on general preparedness, other topics to be covered include: effective crime prevention strategies; becoming involved in community policing; protecting your home from fire-related accidents; teaching children how/when to call 9-1-1; and training citizens to assist the City during an emergency.

In June, the OEMC hosted a severe summer weather awareness workshop, and in addition to the September preparedness workshop, OEMC officials plan to host a severe winter weather awareness workshop later this year.

For more information on the workshop, please call 312-746-9454.

  1. Insurance May Not Be Enough if Disaster Strikes
    Having insurance to protect your property may not be enough. There’s one more thing you must do. A home inventory.
