Free Emergency Preparedness Movie Night at Sandy Cinema

Sandy Cinema is hosting a FREE "Disaster Movie Night" on Tuesday, April 3rd, at 6:30 p.m. The presentation will include information on the Pandemic Influenza of 1918, and will be followed by a discussion and an opportunity for questions and answers. This is an opportunity for the community to become involved in emergency planning, which is a community responsibility, as well as learning what local organizations, agencies, and individuals are doing to prepare for emergencies, and the role you can play in the event of a disaster.

The focus of the movie and discussion will be the possibility of a future flu pandemic, and what can be done in the midst of disaster. This will include controlling the spread of disease, what you should do and not do, and balancing public welfare and individual rights. For more information and future Free Movie Night presentations, you can visit Sandy Cinema on the web.
