September is National Preparedness Month, and one local 911 center is stepping in to give a helping hand. The Raleigh County 911 Center teamed up with the Raleigh County Commission on Aging on September 13th, to deliver hot meals and disaster kits to some elderly members in the community. In addition to the hot meals delivered, the 911 center also gave non-perishable food items to keep on hand. Those involved, like Raleigh County Emergency Planner Kimberly McGraw say it's great to get out into the community and help those in need.
"Sometimes these delivery people are the only people they see. So it's good for us to go out and help with the elderly," said McGraw.
All of those in attendance at the Commission on Aging for lunch this afternoon received disaster kits. The 911 center wants everyone to be prepared, as you never know when a disaster will strike.
