____________________________________________________March is NTDS Practice & Prepare Month. The educational program teaches area school children five ways to prepare for a disaster. After attending a special presentation, children will be asked to take a referral form home with them and have family members sign off on the form that the family member was told by the student at least three ways to prepare for a disaster. Plaques will awarded to each school for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.____________________________________________________NTDS is offering "Tennessee Ready" earthquake preparedness courses starting in February.These courses are offered to all area civic groups and schools for free. Businesses can also be certified at a sliding group rate of $75-$150 per training session. Your business can call the numbers below for a more exact price for your group's size.
Participants learn from FEMA publications teaching proper earthquake drills, how to prepare an earthquake kit for business and home, retrofitting structures and building facilities that are more earthquake resistant.
After successfully completing the one hour course, each participant receives an official certificate to hang in their home or business.Dozens of area businesses and groups already proudly display their certificate including Discovery Park of America in Union City, TN.All proceeds go toward regional disaster relief efforts.For more information on scheduling a "Tennessee Ready" course for your civic group, school, or business, call (731) 592-3947 or (731) 592-5851 or email us at: email@example.com
