Ready for anything? Free SNAP preparedness class tomorrow

June 6, 2011 at 10:03 am | In Preparedness, Safety, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

It’s one hour and 15 minutes of potentially life-saving information: Reminders are circulating today about the city’s next SNAP (Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare) class, which is in West Seattle tomorrow night – 6:30-7:45 pm at High Point Library (35th/Raymond). Free, no registration required. You’ll find out about putting together a disaster kit and a household/family disaster plan, among other things. Be there – the city only offers these in our neighborhood a few times a year. (Another preparedness essential – familiarize yourself with West Seattle Be Prepared resources, including knowing your nearest Neighborhood Communication Hub.)


  1. Very informative presentation by Debbie Goetz, Seattle Emergency Preparedness Specialist, who played to a standing-room-only crowd at the High Point Library. She mentioned there’s a free, two-hour “utility” lesson this Saturday, 12 noon-2 p.m., to learn how to turn off/deal with utility problems and fire control during an emergency situation, such as an earthquake. Details at

    She encouraged residents to prepare personal emergency survival kits, coordinate plans with neighbors in advance of an emergency, and learn more about neighborhood hubs — the volunteer efforts being raised throughout the city for emergency preparedness. One of her top tips: Keep reading WS Blog which has consistent coverage about hubs and emergency preparedness.

  2. Thanks, WSGal. Was thinking of covering it, though we do have a past presentation on video in our Preparedness archive – but the crazy news day made nothing possible tonight but a nap. GLAD to hear of the SRO turnout. And again, for all – know your hub – if you don’t have one, volunteer to organize one! – TR
