June 2017 marks 45 years since the tragic Rapid City Flood of 1972 and all of the lives lost in that terrible event.

Kicking off Remembrance Week, Don Barnett, the former Mayor of Rapid City that was in office during the 1972 Flood, and Alexa White, from the Pennington County Emergency Department, will be presenting a Learning Forum on Sunday, June 4th at 2 PM. For this special Learning Forum, we will be taking donations instead of admission. We will be splitting donations among the Rapid City Police Department and the Rapid City Fire Department to show appreciation in their efforts during the tragic 1972 Flood. Consider donating within your means to help support these incredible causes.

Starting Monday, June 5th of Remembrance Week, we will be showing the extended version of the flood documentary film, "Megafloods", daily. Monday - Thursday at 4:30 PM, Saturday - Sunday at 4 PM

Are you and your family prepared in the event of a natural disaster? With this year marking 45 years since the tragic flood, there is never a better time to evaluate plans that you and your family have in place for any natural disaster that occurs in South Dakota.
