The 10th annual Be Ready Day hosted by Dallas County agencies is a useful tool for young students in Dallas County.

Representatives from groups including Vaughan Regional Medical Center, Selma Police Department, Selma Fire Department, Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, American Red Cross, Kid One, Drug Free Communities of Dallas County and Retired Volunteer and Senior Program attended the event to help get students ready for anything.

Alabama has seen its share of disasters and emergencies. Most of these emergencies are weather events like tornadoes, and the citizens of the state can remember some of the worst tornadoes to come across the state, including some that were relatively recent.

These disasters do not discriminate on who they affect. Any person can be put in a threatening situation due to emergencies like the ones that were taught to young students on Wednesday, and it is important that they are prepared and ready to deal with anything.
