Shelter in Place Workshop – Polk County
November 9, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
In general, sheltering-in-place is appropriate when conditions require you seek immediate protection in your home, place of employment, school or other location when disaster strikes. Local officials are the best source of information when determining whether to evacuate or shelter-in-place. In an emergency, listen to your radio and follow the directions given by emergency officials.
• Gain knowledge about “what is” Sheltering in Place
