Tip of the day

Emergency Preparedness Tip of the Week--

Do you have a “book it bag”?  Do you have some sort of bag with emergency supplies if you were to have to evacuate from your home?  If not, there are a couple of sources of information for you: 

  • Safely Gathered In has information on how to create a 72 hour kit and why they are important to have. 
  • If you are local to East TN, you can visit the Knox County Emergency Management Agency to pick up a Ready Bag Kit.  These are free and contain great information on what you should include in your kit and why.  Contact information:
