Hurricane expo set for Saturday

The 2009 hurricane season has been quiet so far, but with the most active part of the year just ahead, local emergency agencies said they want residents to be prepared if that changes.

The Fish River-Marlow Volunteer Fire Department will sponsor a hurricane expo Saturday at the group’s station on Baldwin County 32.

The free event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. will include displays from the Baldwin County Emergency Management Agency, American Red Cross, local building materials suppliers and firefighters, said Gib Hixon, Fish River fire chief
