Clayton health board offers emergency preparedness seminar

The Clayton County Board of Health is inviting local businesses, community organizations and members of the general public to participate in an upcoming program on emergency preparedness and response efforts in the county.

Board of Health Spokesperson Joel Hall said reservations are now being taken for a free emergency preparedness seminar scheduled to be held on April 12, from 9:30 a.m., to 4 p.m., at the Georgia Archives, located at 5800 Jonesboro Road, in Morrow.

A flyer for the event shows that the seminar objectives are: bring the county’s public and private sectors together “to collaborate on disaster preparedness and response,” and “share ideas on how to make our community more resilient to disaster.” Other objectives outlined in the flyer, include teaching organizations and businesses how to offer assistance in times of a disaster, and how to recover from such an event.
