Congressman Burgess to host Emergency Preparedness Summit

The weather in North Texas is unpredictable and Denton County residents can never be too prepared for the natural disasters that may impact the region.

In an effort to help Denton County residents and businesses be better prepared for severe weather and natural disasters, Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (TX-26), is hosting the fifth annual Emergency Preparedness Summit & Fair on Saturday, April 27, 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 demonstrations and booths where weather and disaster specific organizations will present and distribute practical emergency information.

The event will open at 8 a.m. with access to the fair, and presentations will begin at 8:30 a.m., and Larry Mowry, Chief Meteorologist for CBS 11, 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 Dr. Burgess.  “Just last year we saw how weather can impact us locally, and I want to make sure North Texans are prepared with the tools and knowledge for an emergency.”
