Local agencies to give away disaster kits
BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — Some local agencies want to make sure you have all the things you need for this hurricane season.
The All-State foundation and Points of Light are passing out free disaster kits. It's part of their disaster preparation tour. Agents say most Americans aren't prepared for something bad to happen that's why it's important to start now!
"We're going to have things like flashlights, batteries, face masks, trash bags, rain gear cover-up, and some other educational materials that are necessary for you to know about. So, if we have a catastrophe, you won't be at the last minute running out, scrapping around trying to buy things. You would have already prepared them," said Agnes Andrews, an Allstate Agency Owner.
The giveaway will be this Saturday at the Mall of Louisiana from 11:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m.
