Description

In a major disaster, you and your neighbors will be each other’s closest source of help. “Help Friends & Neighbors Get Prepared,” the second workshop, shows you how to engage neighbors in getting their households ready, and how to organize to help each other after a disaster. Also, you’ll learn about Neighborhood Emergency Teams and, if being a volunteer first responder appeals to you, how to become a NET member. Also much needed are ham radio operators who can provide vital communication links. This workshop will be repeated three times on the following dates and at the following locations…

  • Wednesday April 30 — 6:30 to 9 pm
    Service Employees International Union, 6401 SE Foster Rd.
  • Tuesday May 13 — 6:30 to 9 pm
    SMILE Station, 8210 SE 13th Ave.
  • Tuesday May 20 — 6:30 to 9 pm
    Reedwood Friends Church, 2901 SE Steele St.
