Family Emergency Preparedness Day Canceled

Impending coastal storm for Saturday, September 23 results in event cancellation.

Family Emergency Preparedness Day is expected to return in September 2024 at the same location. Details will be announced next year.

CAMDEN, Del. - The Family Emergency Preparedness Day event scheduled for Saturday, September 23 at Brecknock County Park in Camden, Delaware has been canceled due to expected inclement weather from a pending coastal storm. Out of an abundance of caution, officials from participating agencies determined that the threat of high winds and precipitation would make the event unsafe to both participants and attendees.

However, officials plan to hold the event next year in September 2024 in the same location.

The event was co-sponsored by the Delaware Citizen Corps, Kent County Parks and Recreation and Kent County Department of Public Safety, Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA), the Delaware State Fire School, and the Delaware Division of Public Health Office of Preparedness.
