Next week's mail could save your life

Forrest County residents are being urged to check their mailboxes next week for something that could save their lives.   

It's a new Hazard Emergency Preparedness Plan and it will be mailed to all Forrest County residents the week of August 13. 

The brochure includes details on how to prepare for 14 life-threatening situations, from earthquakes and floods to hurricanes and terrorism.  It also contains two maps which provide locations of emergency information sites and hurricane evacuation routes. 

The brochure was a cooperative effort of Forrest County, Hattiesburg and Petal, USM, the Emergency Management District, Forrest General Hospital and Pine Belt Oil.
