Local church stresses the importance of Preparedness

Posted: Updated:

A local church brought attention to its congregation for National Preparedness Month.

The pastor of the North Beckley Church of Christ stressed the importance of emergency preparedness to his members. Informational material was also distributed. Kevin Taylor of Beckley Ready explained the importance of knowing what to do in case disaster strikes.

"People should develop and keep a "go kit" at your home, business or work," said Taylor. "People should learn how to take care of those with special needs, the elderly and their pets. There's a broad range of topics that need to be addressed."

This was all part of "Ready Sunday" an opportunity for all area congregations to stress the importance of emergency preparedness to their members and visitors on a single day.
