Disaster Preparedness Month, night 6: Dates to remember

Our goal for April is a bite-size chunk of Disaster Preparedness Month information every night (all archived here) – and this time, it’s all about dates: A few to remember, for this month. First and foremost, if you’d like some hands-on instruction in emergency preparedness, the Fauntleroy Community Association, Fauntleroy Church and Fauntleroy YMCA (WSB sponsor) are co-sponsoring a workshop next Monday night (April 12), 7 pm at the church Fellowship Hall (9140 Fauntleroy SW). Here’s the event listing on Facebook. Next official opportunity after that is at Delridge Library on June 8, 6:30 pm, when SNAP (Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare) will present a preparedness class. The city also has an Earthquake Retrofitting workshop in West Seattle in June – 11 am June 1 at the West Seattle (Admiral) Library. And – jumping back to this month – one more date for your calendar: April 21, 9:45 am, it’s a statewide earthquake-preparedness drill. Whether you’ll be at home, work or school at that moment, this state webpage has info on what to do to be part of the drill. Got those dates? Great! Also remember the 3 To Get Ready” campaign, which we introduced last night, and join the West Seattle Be Prepared group on Facebook.

    Don’t know how much feedback you are getting about this service to the community. I’m following it closely and really appreciate the info. I have been really lax in preparing. I need to get off my …… and take some action.

      Not much feedback, but there are a lot of things we do that we know are *seen*, not just commented on, so it’s OK. But thanks for taking the time to say you’re watching it. We even got a shoutout on KC Councilmember Jan Drago’s page for the series, so we know it’s been noticed … as has the hard work of the community volunteers … TR

    I started building my kids today!!! I’m going to stop by the Red Cross next week and buy a family disaster preparedness kit.

Sorry, comment time is over.
