Georgia is holding Severe Weather Awareness Week February 1 - 5, 2010

"After a year of natural disasters that caused millions of dollars of damage to Georgia in 2009, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA), its Ready Georgia campaign, the National Weather Service (NWS) and local emergency management agencies are supporting Severe Weather Awareness Week in the state, Feb. 1-5. Severe Weather Awareness Week is a time when Georgians should practice emergency preparedness and response procedures for all types of severe weather events that could occur." <press release>

It is interesting to see what other areas are doing to educate residents about how to be prepared for natural disasters. The state of Georgia faces severe weather challenges, they have even had to schedule a back-up day for their Tornado Drill in case of severe weather! Today's events include a radio campaign to get residents to obtain a weather radio (I found the Midland model they promote on Amazon for $30) that can be tuned to reports for their county.

Point Roberts Volunteer Firefighters Fire Tactics Training

View the Gallery - When I returned home from the mildly contentious garbage meeting with representatives of the county I had barely gotten in my door when fire trucks began making their way up my road. They whirled their sirens briefly and as I and the dogs ventured out to see what was the danger we saw a plume of smoke exiting the mobile home closest to my house.
