In an effort to help residents and businesses be better prepared for severe weather and natural disasters, Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (TX-26), is hosting the third annual Emergency Preparedness Summit & Fair this Saturday, April 16 in Trophy Club.
The event will feature two panels of experts from local, state, and federal organizations, and will provide information on weather and disaster preparedness. In addition, there will be a fair with booths and outdoor exhibits where weather and disaster specific organizations will present and distribute pertinent consumer information.
The event will open at 7:45 a.m. with access to the fair, and presentations will begin at 8:30 am. Chief Meteorologist for CBS 11, Larry Mowry, will deliver the keynote address.
“There is a wealth of information available to families and businesses in North Texans on how they can prepare and plan for severe weather and natural disasters,” said Congressman Burgess. “I want to make sure North Texans are prepared by having the tools and knowledge on what to do in an emergency.”
