Community Resiliency Summit

Co-Sponsored by PERC Member School Mercyhurst University, the 2014 Erie, Pennsylvania Community Resiliency Summit is filled with opportunities for households, businesses and the whole PERC community! Join us on October 8th, 9th and 10th at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center to learn about ways to be more resilient and prepared for extreme weather and emergencies.

The Summit has presentations and events geared for the general public (Wednesday/Thursday/Friday) and professionals (Friday). The event gets kicked off on Wednesday with a FREE movie screening with pop and popcorn. The first 45 signups on Thursday will receive a FREE Emergency Preparedness "Go-Bag" sponsored by American Red Cross (ARS) and Erie Insurance. Friday is a jam packed day for professionals talking about how local utilities tie into extreme weather and emergency preparedness. The summit closes with a bang on Friday night with the Friday Night Live Dinner Theatre with comedy group In All Seriousness.
