DISASTER PREPAREDNESS WITH RIKKI PERRIN
“Get Ready Rogue” is a new campaign that wants to make sure the people of Josephine County are prepared and ready for an emergency.Emergency Management says it’s still in the beginning stages, but it plans to work with local businesses to have a list of emergency supplies readily available in stores for purchase.
It will also launch a “Preparedness University,” a class that residents can take to go from not prepared at all, to prepared for up to three weeks.
“It’s going to be a multi-faceted approach to communicating with the public,” said Rikki Perrin, Emergency Services Education and Outreach Coordinator. “People learn in all different kinds of ways, they receive information in different kinds of ways, so we’re gonna try and tackle that from multiple angles and reach as many people as we can.”
They will also be selling “go kits” filled with all the supplies you need to survive for three days.
