Disaster preparedness event to be held this weekend

LAKE COUNTY  — Having a plan in the event of a natural or man-made disaster can help alleviate fear and keep people ready for the many uncertainties in life.

A disaster preparedness day fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the lawn of the Lake County Courthouse, 800 10th St. in Baldwin.

The event will help families prepare for possible disasters by making a list of how to make an emergency kit and come up with plans by being informed and involved.

Anyone with questions about the disaster preparedness day fair can contact MSU Extension at (231) 745-2732 or msue.lake@county.msu.edu.
