Fairfield Glade Neighborhood Watch 'Care' Ring Coalition meet March 7

CROSSVILLE — The spring meeting of the Fairfield Glade Neighborhood Watch Coalition (FGNWC) will be held at the FG Community and Conference Center on Thursday, March 7, from 9 a.m. – noon.

How do you find out about an emergency? An evacuation? An approaching tornado? What do you do? How can you be prepared to leave in a matter of minutes? The featured presentation of the meeting, “Preparedness,” will provide us with critical and necessary knowledge to handle an emergency, an evacuation or severe weather situations.

These are critical issues to all Fairfield Glade residents. Spring is coming and so is severe weather.

All Fairfield Glade residents are invited and encouraged to attend, in addition to FGNWC coordinators and members of existing Fairfield Glade neighborhood groups.

The agenda will consist of five items with plenty of time for questions and answers following each presentation.

1. Ms. Evelyne Kornreich, FGNWC vice-chair, will welcome all guests and introduce the FGNWC board members and other special guests.

2. Cyd Riede (membership officer) will provide an update on the continued growth of the coalition and our on-going efforts to meaningfully involve neighborhood watch coordinators.

3. Evelyne Kornreich (vice chair) will update our progress for a decal program that will be available to all Fairfield Glade residents. This update will also include our efforts with FGCC to better place our Neighborhood Watch signs throughout the Glade.

4. Chief Randy Hoover will provide an update on security and public safety

5. Feature presentation: Preparedness – We are fortunate to have distinguished individuals to help us understand the preparedness required to face the issues of our community and county:

•Lt. Gary Howard of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department,

•Mr. Robert Collester, Emergency Management Administration,

•Mr. Steve Norris, our Cumberland County weather forecaster,

•Ray Clark of the FGNWC Board, and

•Ms. LaVerdia McCullough of the TN Commission on Aging and Disability, emergency management coordinator.

These presenters will educate us on the process of evacuation, how to use the county’s reverse 911 service, how to communicate with the other agencies designed to provide assistance when emergencies arise, what kinds of weather events affect us and what we need to do when they occur. You will also understand the information you need to select and use a weather radio for your safety. The presentation will conclude with information on how to make yourself and your loved ones truly ready to leave “at a moments notice.” What do you need? What do you bring? How do you organize and pack?

Please make plans to attend. Ask your neighbors to attend and come together.

My friend and I often comment about the excellent condition of our courses and since we had opportunity to pass a compliment on to Rob, we did.
