With all the news of hurricane damage, it can be a relief to live in a landlocked state like Arizona.

But this state is prone to other sorts of disasters.

Our droughts make us a target for wildfires; our monsoons bring flash floods. That’s why the state’s Department of Emergency and Military Affairs is holding a Preparedness Symposium today.

They’ll talk about the disasters we face in this state. And how to reduce the impact on people, property and the environment.

With us now for a preview of the event is Director of the Division of Emergency Management Wendy Smith-Reeve.
