An Emergency Preparedness Expo will be held from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. March 25 at Sallisaw High School.
The expo is presented by Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Oklahoma City Disaster Services and is sponsored by Sequoyah County Emergency Management and American Storm Shelters Inc.
MaryLynn Lufkin, assistant director of Catholic Charities Eastern Oklahoma Outreach, said, “Attendees will receive valuable knowledge from disaster preparedness experts on how to be prepared for unexpected events. All attendees will be entered to win a $3,395 storm shelter from American Storm Shelters Inc. to be given away that day.”
The expo will also include a free meal, children’s activities, door prizes and more.
Lufkin said, “This expo is given free of charge for all Sequoyah County residents. The event is being held to try to help our communities become better prepared in the event of a disaster in our area. This is a great opportunity to educate ourselves and all of our neighbors on the things we need to think about before an emergency occurs.
