As we approach Labor Day, many of us are getting ready for Back to School. This is an important season to remember that disasters can happen at any time, and all members of our community can prepare.
Kids, teens, parents/guardians and educators can have conversations and take steps so that everyone is knowledgeable and equipped in case of an emergency situation. The more of us who prepare, the more resilient Deptford can be as a community if an incident occurs.
Please review some of the resources linked below. Let’s all get ready to return to school by focusing on what we can do to be disaster ready!
