“We can absolutely help people be prepared and develop plans because easier to execute a plan when you’ve already thought about it rather than on the fly when you find yourself in a really bad situation,” a spokesperson for the department told CBS 11 News.

The training is at the Plano Event Center on Spring Creek Parkway at 6:30 p.m.

The department held a similar training session in December of 2017.
