Recent Flint Weather Inspires Family Emergency Preparedness Course

We probably all passed the flooded yard, driveway, or house after last Thursdays torrential downpour, and in the last few days we’ve seen the cleanup marked by bags of wet garbage moved to the curb.

The recent extreme flooding in Flint has inspired Mott Community College to offer a course to help families prepare for the challenges of weather and other emergencies. The Family Emergency Preparedness Course is a three-hour program aimed at providing your family with the information and tools to survive and emergency or disaster.

The program will be offered on Tuesday, May 22nd from 5:30-8:30pm at Mott Community College’s Southern Lakes Branch on Thompson Road in Fenton. Cindy Sanders, the Director of the MCC Institute for Medical Simulation says, “In a disaster, it might be several hours or days before vital services are restored”. Class participants will learn how to prepare and begin assembling a basic home emergency kit that will be yours to take home. Topics covered include: Knowing how to respond, evacuate, or take shelter when instructions are given, how to identify the types of disaster that you need to prepare for in your area, how to identify the best storm shelter in your home and practicing getting there with your family, and having an emergency kit ready.
