In light of recent events, one local Emergency Management Agency is showing kids how to be prepared for any situation. Etowah County EMA and Downtown Gadsden Inc. have teamed up for the second year in a row to teach kids ages four to twelve the importance of being prepared.
The annual Be A Hero spring break event gave the kids the chance to visit 19 different booths in the water wall court yard. EMA Public Information Officer Breonna Cole says the event is inspiring the kids to be their best.
Cole also says that after last weeks severe storms, they were unsure if they would hold the event, but the EMA decided that it is important that children in Etowah County know what to do in case of an emergency.
