September is National Preparedness Month and Washington and Keokuk County Emegency Mangament Coordinator Larry Smtih is recommending that residents create an emergency kit. He says that people should include three to five days’ worth of food and water for each person and pets, a first aid kit, batteries, cash and a weather radio. Currently, Washington County Public Health was able to attain 50 weather radios for the community through a grant. To request one, contact Cara Sorrells at the safety center.
