During an emergency is not the time to gather together essential items. Having a basic survival kit ready to go – for every family member – is important for every household.
Join Creek County Literacy Program and Creek County EMS as we learn how to build a Basic Survival (Emergency) Kit. During this very timely workshop. Larry Pickens, Special Projects Supervisor, will share great tips on building a 2-day survival kit. Participants will actually build their own survival kit that they can take home.
Pickens’ workshop will offer many worthwhile suggestions. He will cover topics such as where to keep your survival kit, how often contents should be rotated, and what should and should not be in a survival kit. The workshop will be held at the Library Annex, 15 North Poplar Street in Sapulpa on Thursday, May 14 at 5:30pm.
“Attendees will have a much better understanding on what is really important and can be lifesaving after attending this workshop,” shared Pickens.
