BECKLEY - September is National Preparedness Month, and Beckley churches are getting a lesson on how to join in. Tuesday, church leaders are all invited to the North Beckley Church of Christ to discuss how to implement emergency operations plans in their places of worship. Emergency Services director Kevin Taylor says that churches are not immune to tragedies like shootings, but they also must prepare for things like fires and floods. The event begins at 8:30 AM, and it is free of charge.
