WACO -- This afternoon community leaders got a lesson on how to prepare for the effects of natural disasters.
A documentary made by the Texas Department of State Health Services was screened at the Texas Rangers Museum to inform people that the key to recovering from a disaster comes from being prepared before it happens.
The documentary shows real people who've had their lives altered after a tornado hurricane or flood and the Waco Public Health District hopes the movie will motivate our local leaders.
"We want them to take that out to their families, their churches, to their schools, to their communities and show their friends and families," said Kelly Craine, public information officer for the Waco health district. "Here's what we need to do. Let's get started on this right now. It really is meant to be a grassroots effort."
The movie covers everything from droughts to hurricanes so if you would like to watch it go to texasprepares.org
