Dominion Energy Ohio, in partnership with the American Red Cross, is holding Preparedness Day on Saturday, April 6, 2019, at Chief’s Supermarket, 890 South Cable Road, Lima.
The goal is teaching participants the importance of being “Red Cross Ready” in the event of a disaster.
Red Cross and Dominion Energy volunteers will distribute first aid kits between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., or until supplies are exhausted.
Trained Red Cross and Dominion Energy volunteers will administer a five-minute pre-test and post-test to determine participants’ safety and emergency preparedness knowledge.
Participants will receive free first aid kits, sponsored by Dominion Energy, after completing the test.
The kits include such safety supplies as gauze, bandages, hand sanitizer, a cold pack and other information useful in the event of an emergency.
