Georgia Emergency Management Encourages Georgians to be Proactive in Preparing for Severe Weather

(TNS) - The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency encourages Georgians to become proactive about preparing for severe weather by participating in Severe Weather Preparedness Week (Feb. 4-8).

“This state has an unpredictable history when comes to severe weather,” said GEMA/HS Director Homer Bryson. “Whether it’s hurricanes, tornadoes or severe thunderstorms, Georgians need to be sure of one thing … that they’re prepared for any disaster. During Severe Weather Preparedness Week, we’re dedicated to educating our citizens on how to better prepare for sudden weather events.”

Spring (March, April, May) is typically the time where the threat of tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail and frequent lightning from severe storms is at its highest across Georgia. Take advantage of Severe Weather Preparedness Week to review your family's emergency procedures and prepare for weather-related hazards.
