To the editor:

On behalf of the Logan County Department of Public Health and Logan County Emergency Management Agency, we would like to extend our appreciation to several local businesses and agencies for their support and assistance for Logan County Family Preparedness Day (Sept. 15, 2012). With their help we were able to better prepare the families of Logan County for an emergency.

Our sincere gratitude goes to: Lincoln Police Department, Logan County Crime Stoppers, Logan County Paramedic Association, Sysco, Wal-Mart, The Owl's Roost, Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital, Lincoln Fire Department, Lincoln Rural Fire Department, Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System, American Red Cross--Illinois Capital Area Chapter, and Illinois Emergency Management Agency.

During Family Preparedness Day we were able to provide emergency preparedness information to families, tours of emergency vehicles, an inflatable obstacle course and lunch for everyone in attendance. Thank you to the Logan County community for supporting our event. We are looking forward to making next year an even bigger success.

Shana Bean and Alana Sorrentino
