Emergency workers gather here

County Fall Preparedness Expo today

Emergency personnel around the county are gathering today to share information they hope will save lives.

The Muskogee County Fall Preparedness Expo will feature information from county and city emergency management offices, police vehicles, the hazardous materials unit from the fire department, the mass casualty trailer from Muskogee County Emergency Medical Service as well as material provided by OSU Extension officials.

“We have also got agencies from other counties, and we’ve got tons of firetrucks from rural areas,” said Jeff Smith, Muskogee County Emergency Management director.

A variety of emergency response equipment and preparedness equipment will be on display in the Muskogee Civic Center arena and in the parking area west of the civic center.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Muskogee Civic Center.

Medics from Muskogee County EMS will teach CPR.

“EMS will be offering free friends and family CPR classes,” Smith said.

The classes will be for informational purposes only and will not be eligible to earn certification. Two classes will be at 9 a.m. and two will be at 12:30 p.m. in rooms A and B.

“This is the first year we’re doing this in the fall,” Smith said. “It just seemed like October was a great time to do it.”

The event is free and open to the public.
