Ready. Set. Know. event offers free training on emergency preparedness to individuals with developmental disabilities
LITTLE ROCK (Sept. 3, 2019) – In honor of National Emergency Preparedness Month, the Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities (the Council) is inviting Arkansans with a developmental disability and their caregivers to the Ready. Set. Know. emergency preparedness training event at the Museum of Discovery.
This free event will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, at the Museum of Discovery, 500 President Clinton Ave., Little Rock. The event will offer opportunities to tour the Museum of Discovery’s Tornado Alley and Tesla theaters, interactive activities including a passport tour of emergency preparedness experts and more.
“Emergency preparedness has become a key focus by the Council as in recent years there has been a lack of training and communication to the DD community about the precautions they can take before a natural disaster displaces them from their homes,” said Eric Munson, executive director of the Council. “It is our goal to help bridge the gap in information and empower individuals with DD with the necessary information they need to be prepared and safe during a natural disaster.”
Attendees who participate in the Ready. Set. Know. passport activity will have the opportunity to visit experts in emergency preparedness for education and are entered to win a season pass to the Museum of Discovery. Free tickets to the event are available at ArkansasGCDD.eventbrite.com.
