ICE PACK Emergency Preparedness Systems (a subsidiary of Ashbury International Group, Inc.) will be presenting an Emergency Preparedness Equipment Technology Briefing entitled "Extreme Weather Emergencies, Disasters and the Role of NOAA All Hazard Radio Communications" on Thursday, October 27, 2011. This briefing and associated communication demonstrations will be held at the Ashbury International Group, Inc. facility in Ruckersville, Virginia. Registration is required for this event.
We will be pleased to host Mr. Bruce Thomas, Chief Meteorologist and National Spokesperson for Midland Radio Corporation. Click here for his complete biography.
In light of the unprecedented extreme weather events and seismic occurrences in the National Capitol Region and Central Virginia area, one emergency preparedness professional will win a Midland NOAA All Hazards Radio! It is our hope that the professional receiving the radio will further donate it to a preschool, elementary school, shelter or elderly care facility of their choice.
