Join your Regional FEMA disaster preparedness staff and local emergency professionals to learn how to prepare and stay safe during natural disasters. Girl Scouts will watch live demonstrations, participate in preparation drills, and learn what you can do to stay safe! Tour the FEMA federal agency building and an emergency response vehicle, listen to a 911 call simulation, and hear from women who are leaders in this critical industry. Parents will have the opportunity to learn what they can do to protect their families and homes. Girl Scouts will be prepared to know how to keep themselves safe and understand how our local safety response teams work together when disaster strikes. Participants will earn steps toward completion of their First Aid Badge and Safety Award Pin.
