Baldwin County Emergency Management Agency is preparing the public for disasters before they come as we get closer to hurricane season.
Baldwin County EMA is hosting a disaster preparedness expo today, their first event of this kind, to answer the public’s questions about planning ahead.
The state EMA Director, American Red Cross, first responders, and more demonstrated how disasters can come in all shapes and sizes, and how the public can better prepare for them, by talking to residents directly.
Baldwin County EMA Director Zachary Hood says this event is just one way he’s hoping to be better connected to the public in his new position.
“This is an opportunity where you get to talk directly to us, with a vendor, maybe someone who is a responder in your jurisdiction, EMS, fire, law enforcement. You have an opportunity to do that here,” said Hood.
The expo is at Orange Beach Event Center at The Wharf from 9 to 5 pm.
Admission is free to the public.
