Region 26 Emergency Management and 911 from Taylor are having a Weather Symposium for the area residents at the Sandhills Public School.
There will be numerous vendor booths to visit throughout the afternoon and evening. The weather service will give talks and show storm films on past
tornados and where to watch in a cloud to see a tornado, The booths in the gym and weather information in the media room will include preparedness in a disaster, meeting the 911 dispatchers, how to become a HAM Radio operator, registering for CodeRED warning calls, or how to become a volunteer in a disaster just to name a few things happening. The Local Emergency Planning Committee booth for one will tell you what it means to shelter-in-place and what to put in a disaster kit.
There will be a poster display of the area severe weather poster contest winners and also a Kids Corner with fun things to do including making a 911 call. There will
be food and door prizes throughout the event, so Region 26 in Taylor invites you to head on over to the Sandhills High School on the 16th in Dunning between 4 and 8 PM with free admission for all ages. There will be something for everyone!!
