In recent years, Hanover County has been affected by tornadoes and
earthquakes that came with little or no warning. Were you and your family prepared? Are
you prepared for any disasters, natural or man-made, that could be in our future?
On Saturday, April 21, the Central Virginia Emergency Management
Alliance (CVEMA) will host its 9th Disaster Survivor Day, inviting
residents to learn how to prepare for disasters. Hanover County’s event will be
held in the Board Room of the Hanover County Administration Building, located at 7516 County Complex Road. Check-in
will begin at 8:00 a.m. and the class will begin at 9:00 a.m., concluding by noon.
Seating is limited, so please sign up as soon as possible! You can register
online at www.SurvivorDay.com. Registration
is a first-come, first-serve basis. This presentation is not suitable for
small children. The recommended lower age limit for attendees is 12 years old.
One member from each household completing the training will
receive a free survival kit bag loaded with valuable tools.
“Survivor Day” is presented by CVEMA with funding from the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security. CVEMA is a collaboration of local emergency
managers and partner organizations from 25 localities in central Virginia who
voluntarily partnered together after federal funding of the Central Virginia
Urban Area Security Initiative ended. Planning and basic staffing services for
CVEMA are provided by the Richmond Regional Planning District Commission.
