Weather Safety and Awareness Day
at Quintard Mall
Quintard Mall and the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Birmingham will be hosting the first annual Severe Weather Awareness Day on Wednesday, September 28 from 1 pm to 6 pm at Quintard Mall in Oxford, Alabama.
Severe Weather Awareness Day is designed to inform the public on ways to protect themselves whether they are at home, work, shopping, or on the water during a severe weather incident. The NWS will be acknowledging Quintard Mall's continued efforts to keep the public safe during severe weather by recognizing Quintard Mall as a StormReady Supporter. Quintard Mall is one of only a handful of StormReady Supporters that have been recognized by the NWS across the USA. To become a StormReady Supporter, Quintard Mall went through a thorough application and site inspection process.
Severe Weather Awareness Day will give businesses in this area an opportunity to highlight their services during or after severe weather. Local utility companies, storm shelter builders, insurance agencies, non-profit organizations, local and regional media, and many more will be on hand to discuss with the public the services that they provide. Interactive displays will also be available for the public to browse. Have you ever wanted to know about severe weather safety? If so, the NWS will conduct two one hour severe weather safety presentations at 2:30 pm and 4pm respectively.
Join Quintard Mall and the NWS for Severe Weather Awareness Day! The entire event including browsing all hands on displays and experiencing interactive simulators is free to the public!
