MOBERLY - More than 300 women attended a Healthy Woman Holiday Event at the Moberly Regional Medical Center (MRMC) Tuesday evening.

The event was holiday themed and taught women how to make safe decisions for their homes. Some of the topics included holiday light safety and where to place a Christmas tree in the home. It also featured a presentation from MRMC emergency room staff members on how to be better prepared for future emergency room visits.

One woman who attended the event said she's attended similar events, and they all cover important topics women need to consider. 

"These people here just reinforce some of the different things we know we need to do anyway," attendee Barbara Riley said. "But you know that any woman can handle 3 things at the same time and juggle and do just fine."

Representatives from the Moberly Fire Department and the Moberly Police Departments, and other emergency services, set up booths, handed out pamphlets, and answered questions.

"We brought in all these emergency agencies, like fire and rescue and the police department, all of those things so that just during a very busy holiday season when lots of things are going on women are just kinda thinking ahead a little bit," Marketing and Public Relations Director Jaime Morgans said.

In addition to providing safety information, the event featured live music and a Christmas ornament swap.

The holiday event marks the last Healthy Woman event of the year.
