Attend Sept. 25 meeting to prepare for emergencies

September 21, 2017

Hurricanes, Lightning strikes... Can't hurt you? Think again. Most people do not know what they don't know.

Instead of sitting, worrying without HVAC in an extremely hot or cold, dead silent, blackened house without drinkable, running water, because you have no power - get education now!

Wise people learn, plan and manage emergencies, educated by experts to safely save time, many dollars, and lives. An hour of prevention education now is better than expensive weeks of suffering.

Drive to Delaware Emergency Management Agency Director Gary Liang's "Home Emergency Preparedness" presentation. Manage emergencies. Prepare for hurricanes, floods, lightning strikes, evacuations, expenses, etc.

It's free. The public is invited to the Greater Lincoln Civic Association meeting in Sussex County's Emergency Medical Services building, aka the Lincoln Community Center at 18883 Washington St., 2nd Street intersection Monday, Sept. 25, at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30.

To save family and friends from strangers cutting many ugly holes in walls to rewire your houses, moving freezer, food and furniture; re-buying expensive appliances, etc. – invite folks to DEMA's problems-solving.

Free checklists, DEMA's Emergency Readiness Wheels are given to homeowners to answer questions, saving time, money and lives.

William Fox
president, Greater Lincoln Civic Association
