Please join us at the Hawthorne Huddle on Thursday, June 5th, for a topic of importance to all.
The collapse of the 35W bridge and the flooding in southeast Minnesota last summer, as well as recent world-wide disasters, remind us that disasters happen and they can happen to us. Emergency preparedness is a topic of current interest and concern.
From individuals and families to businesses and organizations, it is important to be prepared for anything from severe weather to disease outbreaks.
Being prepared not only helps to minimize personal injury and/or property damage; it also helps to assure the continuation of important services provided by businesses and community organizations.
This presentation will focus on individual and family preparedness, preparing for pandemic influenza and continuity of operations planning for businesses and organizations.
The Hawthorne Huddle will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room at Farview Park, located at 621 29th Avenue North.
A continental breakfast will be available at 7:15 a.m. We hope you can attend and participate in the discussion.
