AURORA, IL - In partnership with America's PrepareAthon, the City of Aurora Emergency Management Agency will host its first Aurora PrepareAthon! to help residents prepare for potential emergencies and disasters.
The Aurora PreparAthon! will be held on Monday, October 3 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Aurora Police Department, 1200 E. Indian Trail.
While everyone knows it is important to prepare, this event will ensure that everyone knows exactly what to do in the event of a disaster. Attendees will learn how to create a family disaster plan, assemble an emergency kit and prepare for specific hazards through group discussions, drills and exercises.
America's PrepareAthon is a national campaign for action to increase individual and community preparedness. The goals of the campaign are to increase the number of people who understand which disasters could happen in their community and to know what to do to be safe while mitigating damage.
