Prepare for the worst

City and county officials have new flood-fighting knowledge after last week’s Federal Emergency Management Agency Mitigation workshop.
“Mitigation is preparing for disaster,” Mercer County Emergency Manager Carmen Reed said. “To me, it’s also about preparing for winter. I want to take the opportunity to remind everyone about the reverse 911 system. If there is a disaster in this county, information will be on the county emergency Web site.”
