On Wednesday, Galveston will make sure it's prepared for hurricanes with a training exercise on the beach and a town hall meeting in the evening.

The city's Hurricane Preparedness Town Hall Meeting is scheduled to begin at 6pm at the Galveston Island Convention Center, 5600 Seawall Boulevard. The meeting will address what everyone needs to do should a major hurricane hit.

Attendees also are encouraged to watch a training drill, which is scheduled to begin at 5pm.

As in year's past, exhibits will open to the public prior to the start of the meeting.

Elected officials, National Weather Service personnel, and representatives from UTMB, Galveston County, and the City of Galveston will make informative presentations.

The public can address the speakers during a community Q&A session. Free hot dogs, cake, and drinks will be provided to all attendees.
