Disaster preparedness presentation held for seniors in Danville

Fire department held presentation Thursday

DANVILLE, Va. – The danville fire department is trying to make sure the city's seniors are prepared for a disaster.

The fire department held a presentation for them Thursday.

Around 35 people attended.

Topics included where to go for emergency shelter and how to sign up for emergency alerts from the city.

There was also a question and answer session.

"One of the other things we want to focus on with the senior group is to have a good support network, communication, to be able to talk to their family, talk to each other because a lot of them live alone and we may not know they need assistance," Danville emergency management coordinator Tim Duffer said.
