Life-Saving Tips at Disaster Preparedness Workshop

disaster-webtabDistrict 9 Councilor Marcus Lundy organized a Disaster Preparedness Workshop for residents at the Ensley Library.  Free emergency kits were handed out as well. A disaster expert from the Hands on River Region group which is funded through Ameri-Corp traveled from Montgomery for the presentation.  Kara Hulett says it is vital to have community leaders such as Councilor Lundy to invite residents to these events to help educate them on how to be prepared for disasters in advance.  Lundy says it was truly a neighborhood effort. The emergency kits were put together by students from South Hampton Elementary and the North Pratt Oversight Committee. For more information got to www.birminghamalcitycouncil.org or WATCH THE VIDEO.
