After Hermine, Valdosta Officials Encourage Residents To Have Emergency Plan

Sep 21, 2016


It’s National Preparedness Month, and the city of Valdosta is encouraging residents to always have a plan in case of an emergency—especially after Hurricane Hermine.

“September is National Preparedness Month,” said Marcus McConico, Media Coordinator for Metro Valdosta 17. “The month is designed to educate Americans to prepare and respond to all types of emergencies. We should all stay informed on severe weather. Families should prepare a disaster kit with at least three days of food and water. Citizens can also get involved with your local American Red Cross Chapter.”
