Sam’s Club is helping Members get prepared for all things relating to their safety and emergency preparation. During the week of July 23rd, 114 Sam’s Club locations throughout the country, including the Canyon Country Location, will host in-Club events, which will each propose emergency plans, as well as feature products and packages to help local residents prepare for and survive disasters, both big and small.
“Most of the U.S. is vulnerable to severe weather, natural disasters and other emergencies; and if you’re like most people, you think it won’t happen to you – until it’s too late,” said John Van Pelt, leader of the Storm Education Team, a project dedicated to helping save lives by educating the public on emergency preparedness.
“We are proud to team up with Sam’s Club and Energizer to help Americans get the right products for their emergency kits as part of a national education campaign. “ During the in-Club events, Sam’s Club will provide both Members and non-Members with indispensable information from local emergency groups to help them prepare for any emergency, as well as offer suggestions on items to keep in an emergency preparedness kit.
The in-Club Emergency Awareness Events will be open to Members and non-Members* July 23rd – July 29th; presentation times vary by Club. *Non-member purchases are subject to service fees.
