With hurricane season in full force, now is the perfect time to attend a hurricane preparedness seminar sponsored by the Lone Star College-Montgomery Safety & Emergency Team (SET) on Monday, June 29, from 1-2:30 p.m. in the Health Science Center (building B), room 102.
Community preparedness planner Clayton Matthys with the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management (MCOEM) will lead this seminar, which is free and open to the public. He will discuss all of the necessary preparations to take in advance of the storm, as well as precautions to take both during and after a hurricane or tropical storm.
Matthys’ primary responsibilities with MCOEM are to conduct public preparedness classes and to coordinate Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training courses. In addition, he simultaneously serves as a forward observer in the Texas Army National Guard.
Prior to his position at Montgomery County, Matthys served multiple combat tours in Iraq during his 10 years in the United States Marine Corps as an infantry rifleman and a squad medic. His academic achievements include a bachelor's degree in homeland security and emergency management, and a subsequent master's degree in homeland security.
