Disaster Preparedness Classes

The Seattle Office of Emergency Management has lined up a series of classes about preparing for a disaster emergency.  Many people in Seattle have had their awareness about the need to prepare by an article last year in the New Yorker magazine about the The Big One.  The author of that article wrote a follow up about what you can do to prepare.

One of the things you can do is learn more about preparing and some skills that will be of use.  The Seattle classes are detailed in the flyer at this link.  In addition to the class on The Basics at the Broadview Library there is a skills workshop and a first aid class.  You need to register to save a place for these.  Just click on the link in the flyer to do so.
