The city of Brighton’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will host a free emergency preparedness class for individuals and families at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 13, at the Brighton Police Department, 3401 E. Bromley Lane.

“Be Ready Class” is an eight-hour class that discusses basic emergency preparedness including planning, hazards, personal safety, hazmat/fire safety, terrorism and how to become better educated and involved within the community. Each participant will receive a first aid kit upon completion of the class.

The OEM provides planning, training, exercises and educational outreach programs related to natural and man-made disasters to assist and prepare citizens, government agencies and private/nonprofit organizations prior to, during and after a local emergency or disaster. They provide the “Be Ready Class” on a quarterly basis.
