With the start of hurricane season comes the annual Severe Weather Safety and Energy Awareness Fair, sponsored by EMEPA.
The organization takes the messages of being safe and energy-aware to its service areas.
EMEPA's Julie Walker says customers can take steps that will save them money on bills, as well as be safer when severe weather comes.
Walker said it's possible people are complacent, five years after Hurricane Katrina.
"We give hurricane preparedness information, examples of things to have in your disaster supply kit in case a hurricane hits and you can't get out," Walker said. "In addition to that, we provide energy efficiency information and electrical safety information, especially at the start of summer time when a lot of people have trouble with their bills, with the heat and the air conditioner."
EMEPA continues its severe weather awareness days Thursday in Quitman and Friday in Meridian. You'll find them at the EMEPA offices from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
