MONROE - With September being National Preparedness Month, the City of Brodhead and Green County Emergency Management will host disaster preparedness training from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24 in the community room at the Brodhead Memorial Public Library, 1207 25th St.

Those attending will have a chance to win a free weather alert radio.

National Preparedness Month was designated nine years ago by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as a time when communities, businesses and households take steps to plan and prepare for emergencies and disasters.

The training will demonstrate steps people can take to be better prepared to deal with the aftermath of emergencies or disasters, such as tornados, flooding, power outages, winter storms and extreme heat.

The preparedness training will provide information on what services local, county and state agencies are able to provide following disasters.
