Hurricane Preparedness Expo, August 7th

Gloucester County’s Emergency Management department is urging residents to make sure they are prepared for the threats that can come along with hurricane season, which will stretch into the fall.

With several storms already impacting coastal areas this early in the season, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting an active year.

To help residents prepare, Gloucester’s Emergency Management Department is planning a Preparedness Expo on Saturday, August 7 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. to coincide with Virginia’s Tax-Free Holiday. The Expo, which will be full of preparedness materials, activities, and information, will be held in partnership with and at the Gloucester Home Depot store.
