We had a very successful day helping hundreds of Caldwell County residents sign up for Code Red notifications and learn about preparing emergency kits for their families. It was a beautiful day, and people were grateful for the information. We were pleased with the number of folks who are already registered to receive Code Red notifications. Some already have emergency kits and others were interested in learning what to do. We had a game for children to play in creating a list of items an emergency kit should include thanks to NC Emergency Management. They did very well!
Some of our CERT team partners, Bethel Colony of Mercy, Kings Creek Fire Department, and the Caldwell Amateur Radio Club, also had booths at the festival. All of our first responder groups were represented with booths and equipment displays. Nothing warms a child’s heart like seeing a big fire truck!
