Family Emergency Preparedness Day is a yearly event co-sponsored by the Delaware Citizen Corps, Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA), Kent County Department of Public Safety, Kent County Parks & Recreation, and Delaware Division of Public Health-Office of Preparedness-Emergency Medical Services & Preparedness Section.

Special demonstrations and activities focus on emergency preparedness, such as the “Emergency Kit Relay Races” for kids, and the Preparedness and Safety Scavenger Hunt. More than 30 exhibitors will provide  interactive displays and free preparedness giveaway items. The first 500 people to complete an activity challenge will get a free water ice from Kona Ice!
