Rotary Club Gets Emergency Medical Info September 4, 2018 The Rotary Club of Ville Platte today (Tuesday) heard from Karen Buroker, a registered nurse and Region Four Emergency Response Coordinator for the Acadiana Region. With Tropical Storm Gordon preparing to strike the Gulf coast tonight, Buroker shared with Rotary Club Members tips and advice to prepare for a storm. She shared special preparedness guides issued by the state. She urged residents to go online to get a game plane.org for lots of useful information. She urged families should prepare an emergency supply checklist that includes food, personal items, clothing and bedding, papers and valuables, safety supplies, prescriptions and medicines, first aid supplies and cooking equipment. She also urged that your plans should include a plan for your pets while you may be gone for several days. Karen was the special guest of Rotarian Bob Buroker. In other business, Club President Richard LeJeune announced that the club will prepare special Christmas baskets for ten needy families for the holidays. He is asking club members to turn in names for review.
