Hurricane Preparedness Q & A Held for Bridgewater Residents


Whether you’re a long-time resident or a newcomer to the area, June-November is considered Hurricane season in the Atlantic.  It doesn’t mean the area will be impacted by a storm; it means to plan and prepare to make the best and safest decisions during a weather emergency.

Over 87 Bridgewater residents were in attendance as a representative from SCEMD (South Carolina Emergency Management Division) spoke, handed out the SC Hurricane Guides, and answer questions.
