A community's response to natural disasters can be a paramount factor for the integrity of the town or city. The city of Shelbyville recently made some efforts to its action plan when bad weather strikes to avoid injuries and chaos. A presentation will be held at the US Army Corps Of Engineers Visitors Center, on November 8th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, to inform and answer questions about emergency weather scenarios.
Brenda Elder, Director for Shelby County Economic Development explains the details of the presentation.
Elder was surprised by businesses' responses to natural disasters as many do not have the insurance coverage to handle weeks with no income. Elder says this information will be valuable for the public.
Shelbyville does have a disaster preparedness plan in place in accordance with state law. Still, Elder notes that many local community members might not know this information or where to find it.
Elder says there will be a question and answer portion of the presentation following the words from Emergency Management and first responders.
