***Preparedness Demonstration by Boy Scouts Troop #63, Virginia Beach***
"America's PrepareAthon" is FEMA's initiative to provide "an opportunity for individuals, organizations, and communities to prepare for specific hazards through drills, group discussions, and exercises." As you know, Coastal Virginia is prone to many types of natural disasters! Let's make Coastal Virginia an example to the rest of America by coming together as a community and pledging to prepare for hurricanes and other natural disasters.
Admission to the event is FREE and is open to the general public. The PrepareAthon party will feature community VIPs and local media, over 30 preparedness organizations in the vendor hall, fun interactive games for people of all ages, D&B's arcade, prizes and more! I will be promoting this event live on The Weather Channel in Atlanta on May 29th!
Please join us and help Coastal Virginia officially kick off the 2014 hurricane season!
