Ready Oklahoma and Radio Disney Rock the Tulsa Zoo for National Preparedness Month
Ready Oklahoma and Radio Disney are giving Tulsa families the opportunity to “rock out” while getting prepared for emergencies this Saturday, Sept. 19th, at the Zoo’s Annual Enrichment Day. The event is in support of National Preparedness Month; part of the Ready Oklahoma campaign to encourage emergency preparedness sponsored by the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security (OKOHS). This is the second year that OKOHS has teamed up with Tulsa’s own Radio Disney to promote family preparedness planning in the state.
During National Preparedness Month, Ready Oklahoma is asking families to take three simple steps to get ready for emergencies:
“Oklahomans understand better than most that disasters can happen at any time and we just want every family to be as equipped as possible to deal with those threats whether they are weather-related, as we so often experience, or a terrorist act like the Oklahoma City Bombing,” says Kerry Pettingill, Director of Oklahoma Homeland Security.
Visitors to the zoo will find something for everyone including fun and interactive games incorporating preparedness information for children in attendance. There will also be a sing-along style concert, dance-off for the kids and a Preparedness Relay. OKOHS will be handing out tons of free Ready Oklahoma promotional items.
“Families are going to have a great time this weekend, but they’re also going to learn valuable information that will help minimize the impact of a disaster by giving them the tools they need to take care of themselves,” said Pettingill.
For questions about this and other National Preparedness Month events, please call Brook Arbeitman in the OKOHS at (405) 425-7293.
