How prepared are you for the holidays? For what Mother Nature will most likely throw at us this winter? Not so sure? Then you won’t want to miss FEMA’s upcoming free webinar, “‘Tis the Season: Preparing for a Winter Storm and the Holidays” on Thursday, December 10 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM (EST).

During the webinar, you’ll meet Matthew Lyttle from the FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Division, who will discuss America’s PrepareAthon! and ways to prepare for a winter storm. You’ll also get a chance to hear from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Weather Service, who will present on the winter seasonal outlook, El Niño, the Winter Weather Safety Campaign and driving safety. NFPA’s own Judy Comoletti will also provide some great information on holiday safety and the risk of Christmas tree and cooking fires, and Sandy Facinoli from the FEMA U.S. Fire Administration, will present on holiday safety, the risk of electrical and candle fires, the danger of New Year’s fireworks, and heating safety.
