Originally from Southern California, Lorna Armstrong was deeply impacted by a 7.0 earthquake near her home in Northridge in 1994. Having seen firsthand what it was like to be without water, power, gas and other basic services, Lorna joined her fire department’s local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). When she moved to Alpharetta in 1998, she joined the CERT program in that community as well. After 25 years in the corporate world, Lorna decided to make a business out of her passion for emergency preparedness, and formed Armstrong Emergency Readiness in 2009. The mission of her company is to prepare families for any type of emergency, whether it is a “shelter in place” emergency, or an evacuation. She trains families, caregivers and others on what to put in the Emergency Preparedness “kit” and how to be ready to survive the aftermath of an emergency.
