Natural and manmade disasters have the ability to disrupt lives, and without careful planning can have adverse effects for years to come. To help individuals, families, businesses, and non-profit organizations to better prepare, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System’s Urban Affairs and New Nontraditional Programs unit will hold its first Urban Living Expo (ULE), and the theme is “Plan-Prepare-Practice: Don’t Get Caught off Guard When Disaster Occurs!”
The primary objectives are to:
engage the public through interactive displays
disseminate information across Extension program areas to individuals, families, and local businesses and organizations about disasters
help participants learn the most effective actions to take to maximize safety and ensure that their needs (and the needs of others) are adequately met should disaster strike
In addition, we are asking participants to bring non-perishable food items that will be collected and donated to local food banks.
Exhibitors are asked to pay a set-up fee of $25 or provide a door prize of equal value. For more information, please contact Robert Spencer at 256-372-4983 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to become a sponsor, please contact Dr. Karnita Garner at 256-372-8331 or email@example.com, or visit us online for more information.
