County governments partner to host annual hurricane expo in Four Corners community

RELEASE DATE: June 6, 2008

CLERMONT — Join the counties of Lake, Orange, Osceola and Polk for the Second Annual Four Corners Hurricane Expo on Saturday, June 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cagan Crossings Community Library, 16729 Cagan Oaks, Clermont. (Located on U.S. Highway 27, about one-half mile north of the U.S. Highway 192 intersection).

The free hurricane expo will feature informational booths from a variety of agencies, such as emergency management offices, fire departments and disaster volunteer organizations. The expo will also include presentations from emergency responders on a variety of topics, including weather radios, food safety, children coping with disasters and stockpiling a disaster supply kit. In addition to the hurricane preparedness information available at the expo, various emergency-response apparatus will be on display to view.

“It's important that all residents of Florida are hurricane-ready,” said Jerry Smith, Director of the Lake County Emergency Management Division. “The Four Corners Hurricane Expo will help educate residents not only from our county, but our neighboring counties as well, about how to get ready for hurricane season. We need to help people to understand hurricane preparation is a personal responsibility.”

More than 500 residents from Lake, Orange, Osceola and Polk counties attended the first hurricane expo for the Four Corners community last year at Polk County's Outpost 27. The idea behind the educational event is to have a different county in the Four Corners area host the event each year.

For more information about the Four Corners Hurricane Expo, call the Lake County Emergency Management Division at (352) 343-9420 or log on to www.lakecountyfl.gov.
