September is National Preparedness Month

Russell Warner (left), 812th Civil Engineering Squadron, Emergency Management specialist, lets a young woman spin the Air Force Emergency Management Wheel to get a prize and answer an emergency preparedness trivia question. Emergency Management is taking part in National Preparedness Month events throughout September.

Throughout September, the Office of Emergency Management at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., will be out and about with the “Spin-the-Wheel, Win-a-Prize!” game three days a week educating the Edwards community about emergency management preparedness.

People can answer a question and win a prize. The events can help people learn about preparing for emergencies while having fun. 

Representatives will be at the Commissary on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (except Sept. 12) and at the Exchange on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

They will be at the Express gas station on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

If units would like to schedule a time and date for Emergency Management reps to set up the wheel at their workplace, call 661-277-6555. Requests are one-time only during September on either Mondays or Fridays and limited to two hours.
