Can You Spare 10 Minutes For a Free Case of Water?

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

In 10 minutes or less, you could help the city with an exercise in emergency preparedness. On Wednesday, June 20, the city will test its capabilities to deliver water to citizens in the event the public water supply is ever compromised, such as a result of a severe storm. We need your help to make this exercise a success.

Just drive through the designated area at First Colonial High School, 1272 Mill Dam Road, or Salem High School, 1993 Sun Devil Drive, between 9:30 and 11 a.m. You’ll receive a FREE case of bottled water, a FREE reusable shopping bag, a Virginia Hurricane Evacuation Guide and plenty of other giveaways. There will be signs posted in the immediate area that will direct participants to the distribution site.

For additional information, contact Barbara Morrison at (757) 385-4075 or 572-2053.

For information regarding city services and information, contact VB311 Citizen Services seven days a week by dialing 311 on landlines within the city limits, (757) 385-3111 by cell phone, or visit for online assistance.
