Seminar Prepares Residents for Emergency

Delray Beach Fire-Rescue personnel recently educated residents in the Rainberry Bay development on medical emergency awareness and hurricane preparedness.

Firefighter/Paramedic Kenneth Thompson stressed the importance of preparedness as the best form of emergency prevention.

Fire rescue seminar 1Also present were members of the Community Emergency Response Team, which educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medial operations.

The fire department provides free home safety surveys to prevent unnecessary medical emergencies, such as falls and accidental poisonings; preventable fires; and unnecessary mishaps during hurricanes.

Residents were urged to consider having a home safety survey performed in their homes and to spread the word throughout their community.
