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 seattle.gov/emergency.

    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 http://westseattleblog.com/category/preparedness – but the crazy news day made nothing possible tonight but a nap. GLAD to hear of the SRO turnout. And again, http://westseattle.bepreparedseattle.info for all – know your hub – if you don’t have one, volunteer to organize one! – TR
