Lay Park Closings and Maintenance Notices

There is currently one closing at this location.
Lay Park Community Center to Participate in Red Cross Drill Friday, March 24
Facility 060 | Posted: 8:00 PM, March 10, 2017
On Friday, March 24, Lay Park Community Center will be closed to the public from 8 AM to 1 PM to facilitate a drill being conducted in cooperation with the American Red Cross and Athens-Clarke County's Office of Emergency Management.

Designed primarily to provide Red Cross staff and volunteers an opportunity to rehearse standing up, operating, and closing a disaster response shelter under non-emergency conditions, this drill will also exercise backup communications systems and rehearse inter-agency cooperation.  Drills such as this are critical to test procedures and provide an invaluable opportunity for everyone involved to ask questions outside of the time pressure of an actual emergency event.

Leisure Services is excited to have this opportunity to assist in our community's disaster preparedness and is one of many agencies and offices within Athens-Clarke County that work with the Office of Emergency Management on a regular basis to help our community prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergency events.

While the Community Center will be closed until 1 PM, the remainder of Lay Park will be open as usual.

More on disaster response and preparedness can be found online from the Athens Clarke-County Office of Emergency Management, the Georgia Emergency Management & Homeland Security Agency, or the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
