PGPD to Co-Host a Community Emergency Preparedness Conference

The Prince George’s County Police Department, in partnership with the Office of Homeland Security, other government agencies, utility providers, community and faith-based organizations, will host a Community Emergency Preparedness Conference on Saturday, October 13th, 2012.  The conference is free and open to the public.

In its continuing effort to broaden and strengthen the community’s ability to safeguard itself, the Prince George’s County Police Department will co-host workshops on what to do in the event of natural disasters or catastrophic events.  Workshop discussions will cover measures to be taken for individuals with functional needs or in congregate living, how to develop a three to five day sustainability plan, surviving without utilities for an extended period of time, and how to determine whether existing insurance coverage would be enough to help a family recover from devastating events such as tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, etc. 

Please email or call 301-772-4880 if language/sign interpreters or other special needs assistance is required.
