Disaster Preparedness Program Scheduled
The Lee County office of Texas AgriLife Extension Service, along with Lee County Emergency Management Coordinator Delynn Peschke, St. Mark’s Medical Center and Country CarePlex, will host a Disaster Preparedness Program on Thursday, June 21, beginning at 6 pm in the Giddings High School Cafeteria. Admission is free and open to all citizens in and around Lee County.
The emergency services available in Lee County will be identified and information will be presented on how families, as well as businesses, should be prepared for emergencies. Visitors will also learn what resources are available after such emergencies as wildfires, floods, tornadoes or hurricanes.

Also, there will be a panel of representatives from other Lee County agencies that will discuss their roles and how their agency would respond in the event of a disaster.
Individuals with disabilities who plan to attend and who may need auxiliary aids, services or accommodations must contact the Lee County Extension office five days prior to the event so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
