October 1 '07: Volunteers, members of the Lehigh County Emergency Response Team and the Allentown Health Bureau in Allentown, Pennsylvania were on-hand at the local Wegmans Food Markets over the weekend, passing out emergency preparedness information and locally-produced emergency preparedness DVD's, the Morning Call reported.
The Morning Call reported that volunteers said their main goal was to educate the community about ways to prepare for an emergency - that it did not necessarily mean a terrorist attack - but a situation which would restrict normal operating habits. One man who took a emergency information kit said he learned the value of being prepared when he was house-bound after he broke an ankle."Members of the Allentown Health Bureau, Lehigh County Emergency Resposne Team and local volunteer groups distributed more than 1,200 brochures and more than 2,500 bottles of water in the vestibule of Wegmans ... encouraging customers to prepare for the unexpected," the Morning Call reported.
