On Saturday, November 9 there will be an informational event from 9:00 a.m. to Noon at the Effingham County Emergency Operations Center (located behind the Auto Mall on South Route 45). There will be short presentations by various public safety disciplines that every citizen should know. Afterwards from Noon to 3:00 p.m. there will be a public safety display fair for people to view and ask questions of area professionals. We are also reaching out to area churches and volunteer organizations to consider putting together their own volunteer groups that can help with pre-determined essentials in an emergency. If this program is a success we will be contacting neighboring counties to set up a similar program and establish a mutual aide agreement to help each other. 
There will be food service available for purchase at noon. To help give us an idea of how many will be responding, we are asking people to email and put the number attending in the subject line.
