The BRADD Citizen
Corps Council’s mission is to educate the public on being prepared for
disasters. They accomplish this in many
ways. They produce a quarterly
newsletter (link to newsletter) with information on upcoming events, articles
on preparing for certain disasters and information on past events. They also provide Community Emergency
Response Team training that educates people
about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills
such as fire safety and suppression, light search and rescue, and basic first
aid and disaster medical operations.
These skills can be used to assist family, friends, neighbors and
co-workers during and after a disaster. They
also focus on a Disaster Theme each month. For December, they have chosen to
focus on Winter Storm Awareness. As winter approaches, now is the time to get
prepared. There are four steps to preparing for anything; Be Informed, Make a plan, Get a Kit, and Get involved. November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month - click here to learn about getting involved.
Shingles Vaccine is available at the Logan County Health Department. Call 270-726-8341 for an appointment or for more information.
Notice: The Health Department will be closed on Thursday, November 27 & Friday, November 28. Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
