Free Community Awareness and Partnerships Training for Disaster Preparedness in Laurens County

The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office and the National Sheriffs’ Association are sponsoring an All-Hazards Homeland Security Initiative Community Partnership and Awareness Training for Disaster Preparedness in Laurens County. 

This unique training opportunity is designed to educate the community how best to prepare and respond to a disaster when emergency responders are overwhelmed.  Hurricane Katrina has taught us that citizens may be left to cope with a crisis on their own for the first hours or even longer. 

Training includes:

  • How to create a Family Disaster Plan
  • What to include in a Family Disaster Kit
  • Developing a Community Resource Data Base
  • Crisis Response
  • Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, & Explosive information
  • Terrorism Awareness

A Desktop Exercise specific to Laurens County, SC   

The class will take place at Faith Baptist Church, 1607 Greenwood Road, Laurens, SC on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 9AM to 4PM.  The classroom will be open at 8:30 am for check-in (and complimentary continental breakfast). The training is cost-free to all attendees.  All interested community members are strongly encouraged to participate.  To attend, you must register by contacting: Randall Frye, Community Program Specialist, at 864.681.4505 or
