Capital City prepping for Hurricane Season
May 21, 2018
Hurricane season is just around the corner, and the City of Tallahassee is encouraging residents to learn and prepare at a June 2 event.
The fourth annual “Build Your Bucket” disaster preparedness expo will run from 9 a.m. to noon at the North Florida Fairgrounds and include information and activities for all ages.
The main event will see attendees drop by booths to learn about local resources for surviving and recovering from disasters and pick up supplies to add to their buckets. The Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross will also be on hand leading “Pillowcase Project” workshops where children can learn how to stay safe in an emergency.
Attendees can also get an up-close look at a variety of emergency response vehicles during “Touch-a-Truck.” Confirmed for the event are autos from the fleets of the Tallahassee Fire Department, Leon County Emergency Medical Services and the Salvation Army.
