In order to raise awareness for severe weather that may occur in the fall and winter, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency/Homeland Security’s (GEMA) Ready Georgia campaign announced the first statewide PrepareAthon! for Tornado Safety will take place Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014.
Ready Georgia’s PrepareAthon! for Tornado Safety is part of America’s PrepareAthon!, a national, grassroots campaign designed to increase individual and community preparedness and resilience through hazard-specific drills, group discussions and exercises throughout the year. It is based on extensive research that shows many Americans are unprepared for emergencies, despite many severe weather-related disasters that have devastated communities.
