As a rural community, our ability to respond to emergencies and recover from disaster is dependent on the networks and relationships we build in advance. Knowing where and how to connect to information and resources before a crisis is key. The All County Picnic is a two-day event that invites East Jefferson County to a community-wide celebration of resiliency and emergency preparedness. Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21.
On Saturday, August 20 from 11am-4pm at H. J. Carroll Park’s Rotary Pavilion, engage leaders from city and county agencies, and leaders from Jefferson County’s network of public health and safety professionals, including KPTZ! Afterwards, grab your Go Bag and corn on the cob to bring home to your neighborhood “Picnic in Place” gathering.
On Saturday, August 20, neighborhoods throughout East Jefferson County will host “Picnic in Place” events with the help of their NPREP Team. Events will be social, fun neighborhood gatherings focused on building relationships, networking, and paging up on preparedness topics. To connect with your Neighborhood NPREP Captain, go here.
The 10th Annual All County Picnic is a collaborative effort of the Jefferson County Department of Emergency Management, Local 20/20’s NPREP Action Group, and The Production Alliance.
