Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016 | 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Pennington County Emergency Management along with partnering agencies host the 8th Annual Disaster Awareness and Safety Day on Sunday, September 11. This year’s event takes place on the 15th Anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks. Preparedness is a shared responsibility; it takes a whole community. Police, fire and rescue may not always be able to reach you quickly if theyre overwhelmed by demand from an emergency. The most important step you can take in helping your local responders is being able to take care of yourself and those in your care. The more people who are prepared for disasters, the quicker the community will recover.

Bring the family to Disaster Awareness and Safety Day learn how to make an emergency plan, build an emergency kit and get involved; learn about the Community Emergency Response Team training here in Pennington County; see Emergency Vehicles up close and learn how responders are ready for disasters; see Amateur Radio Demonstrations; see the Rapid City Police Dept.
