Pedro isn’t a real penguin. But with children as his target audience, Pedro’s message of safety and emergency preparedness just might save a life some day. The “Prepare With Pedro” activity books will be among the children’s safety materials that Volusia County’s Emergency Management staff will distribute this Saturday at four libraries around the county. It’s all part of Emergency Preparedness Month, which is recognized nationally every September.
Reach thousands of people throughout Central Florida.
Emergency Preparedness Month is designed to promote awareness about the importance of developing family response plans for potential disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and fires. The focus of the last week of the month is on teaching children about preparedness. With that in mind, staff from Volusia County Emergency Management will be on-hand this Saturday from 10 a.m.-noon to pass out activity books like “Prepare With Pedro” and answer questions from children about being prepared. The participating libraries are as follows:
DeLand Regional Library, 130 E. Howry Ave.
Deltona Regional Library, 2150 Eustace Ave.
New Smyrna Beach Regional Library, 1001 S. Dixie Freeway
Daytona Beach Regional Library, 105 E. Magnolia Ave.
Parents are welcome to stop by one of the participating libaries on Saturday and pick up materials to bring home to their children.
