Climate change has brought a host of safety concerns to our everyday life. Flooding, severe storms, and extreme heat are a few of the realities for us living in Northern Virginia. Learning how to respond and what resources are available are effective ways to keep yourself, your family and your neighbors safe when faced with an emergency or natural disaster.
Regional Planner, Teresa Scott Haggard, and Exercise and Training Officer, Brent Ruggles, from the City of Alexandria Office of Emergency Management will discuss what to do to be ready and how to help when an emergency arises.
Registration with an email address is required for this virtual event.
