Bibb County students can now learn how to handle severe weather and other emergencies through the Preparedness University, which is run by the Macon-Bibb EMA.

Every last Tuesday of the month, kids will go through lessons on topics like tornadoes, heat, and CPR.

The EMA says the goal is to especially target students who are home alone during the day.

"And also it gives them important skills for the future as they go into the workforce," says David Gowan, director of risk management for Bibb County Schools. "No matter what type of business or entity they end up working for, those businesses will have emergency management needs."

To sign up, you can call the Macon-Bibb EMA at (478) 832-6300.

Registration is now open and there is no fee or deadline to join.
