I’m with Charleston Home + Design Magazine
For the past 8 years, we have organized the Charleston Hurricane Expo and have viewed this event as an important way to motivate the public to prepare in advance for a hurricane or disaster.
This year we are changing the name of the Charleston Hurricane Expo to the Charleston Hurricane + Disaster Expo taking place Friday, August 24, 2012 at The Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium. We will have two “Disaster Simulations” at the expo; one a hurricane simulation and one an earthquake simulation where a team of doctors from the Charleston Medical Society will treat “victims” of these disasters.
We are interested in talking to local “preppers” about having them attend the Charleston Hurricane + Disaster Expo and speak to the public about the steps it takes to prepare for a disaster. Ideally we’d ask that someone bring a few items from home to show the public as well (vegetables or fruit you have canned at home, etc.). I understand that some may desire to remain “low profile” in the publics eye and we’d be happy to accommodate in any way by keeping your identities private or anonymous.
If anyone is interested in helping us this year at the Charleston Hurricane + Disaster Expo, please let us know at your earliest convenience.
thanks sooo much!!!
