Survivor Day Logo


Is nature sending Virginia a message?
The ground beneath us trembles.
Our streets disappear under water.

It seems the message is this: Be Prepared. On Saturday, March 11th, 2017, join public safety partners from across the Central Virginia region in Survivor Day ...an event where you and your family can learn how to live safely through natural disasters and other emergencies. Do you know what you need to survive at home without power for at least 72 hours? Or what to take with you if you had to leave in a hurry? Emergency and Community Response professionals will show you how to prepare for these threatening situations. Plus, they'll arm you with a free Survivor Starter Kit.
You will learn about:
  • Food & Water Safety
  • Household Safety
  • First Aid & Hygiene
  • Planning & Documents
  • Fraud/Home Security/Identity Protection
  • Basic Active Shooter Awareness

Listen to radio interview.

It happens Saturday, March 11th, 2017 at multiple Central Virginia locations. Presented by the Central Virginia Emergency Management Alliance.
