Storm Camp

Are you ready?

Picture1There are many natural or man-made potential threats and hazards to Montgomery County including the usual severe storms, floods or extreme heat and the unusual earthquake or chemical spill.

Storm Camp is a free half-day interactive educational event for adults and children designed to help you answer the question above with a resounding yes, no matter the threat. Storm Camp will show you how to:

  • build a Home Disaster Kit

Kids 4-10 will enjoy a special program of fun and learning that will turn ordinary youngsters into “Ready Pirates” equipped with age-appropriate emergency skills.
