“In light of recent events, I would like to reach out to our community and invite ALL to view a video on preparedness. I believe this video, made by the LA County Sheriffs Office, is an all-encompassing video that can heighten our sense of situational awareness and remain proactive. We ALL have a part to play in ensuring we are preparing, planning and training and getting out of that “It will never happen here” mentality. To access the video, go to the homepage of www.beconast.com and scroll all the way down on the home page and simply click on the video. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at 304-725-6512
