In recognition of National Preparedness Month, TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center in Smyrna is offering a free disaster preparedness training class on September 13th at 1:30 p.m. September is designated as National Preparedness Month, which was founded after 9/11 to increase awareness and encourage action for emergency preparedness nationwide. The theme for this year is “Pledge to Prepare.”
This free training class will help attendees be better prepared for disasters by instructing them on how to develop a family disaster plan, create disaster kits, and the types of disasters that may affect them. The class will be led by T.J. Burke, emergency preparedness coordinator and emergency department RN at TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center. T.J. assisted in disaster relief during hurricane Katrina and in establishing a relief station at the Smyrna/Rutherford County Airport.
Registration is required. Call TriStar MedLine at 615-342-1919 or visit TriStarHealth.com for more information or to make reservations.
