Natural disasters can happen at any place and any time. That's why Ashland Fire and Rescue held an emergency preparedness event today.
They called it "Ashland is Ready". Over a hundred locals showed up. They learned about how to respond to a number of emergencies including fires, floods, earthquakes, and how to be ready for the worst.
"Emergency services are not available to everyone when a disaster hits so we need people to be aware and be ready."
"I feel like my awareness is greater."
Each person got to take home an emergency kit that included power bars, water, dry food, flashlights, and other disaster ready gear.
