Emergency information and resource fair planned in Suwanee

By Georgia News Network
SUWANEE - Gwinnett County Emergency officials are planning an information and resource fair this coming Saturday in conjunction with National Emergency Preparedness month.

"We're going to have a seminar session in the morning with four different speakers. We're going to have a resource fair with a variety of exhibits in the afternoon," Get Ready Gwinnett Co-chair Laura George said.

Although not the first time the Gwinnett Coalition for Emergency Preparedness has held this sort of event, the agency is reaching out to a group of people.

"We have gone to great lengths to make sure that those with mobility challenges, hearing challenges, visual challenges or any other challenges are especially welcome on that day," Georgia said.

The fair is 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Annandale Village in Suwanee. The event is free and open to the public.
