Be Prepared: Seminar Covers Emergencies

Hurricane season might be winding down, but winter is just around the corner. Fairfield's emergency responders want to make sure you're prepared for the worst. Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director Richard Felner will lead "Disaster Readiness 101" at the Fairfield Library main branch on Monday evening.

"Comprehensive emergency management plans have been developed that enable the community to provide safety and security for the community," deputy fire chief Art Reid said. "These plans are utilized every year, typically during weather-related events."

The seminar coincides with the end of National Preparedness month. Members of the town's Fire, Police and Health departments, the state Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security and the Fairfield Citizen Corps Council will present tips on dealing with potential disasters such as hurricanes and ice storms. They will also outline Fairfield's contingency plans, and teach residents the best ways they can get help if an emergency occurs.

The program runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday. It will take place in the Rotary Room of the Fairfield Public Library's Main Branch at 1080 Old Post Road.
