Description

How to live an "In Practice" lifestyle of Preparedness

Do you have what you need around you when there's an emergency? Is your community connected in an event of disaster? It seems overwhelming, but let us help you navigate your way to a plan.

We want to help you be prepared and not feel overwhelmed in the task of deciding “what items are the most important to have on hand.” Many of us have seen devastation on the news due to storms or earthquakes…. We know that we will never truly be ready for the upset of an emergency, but WE CAN have a PLAN IN PLACE and CREATE AN EXPECTTION so we have a FIRST COURSE OF ACTION.

Preparedness is Sustainability:

February 7th Dave Rasmussen, Public Educator/PIO of Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management will talk with us about Kitsap’s emergency plan, and the value of Mapping Your Neighborhood. Community Resource Officer Schon Montague will also join us to present Law Enforcement’s role during times of crisis.

March 7th Peter Apgar, Community Educator of Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management will talk in depth about putting together your TO GO BAG. This is the kit you grab when you gotta go, now! He will also talk with us about our local H.A. M. Radio operators... who are they and what do they do.

April 4th and May 2nd (possibly also June 6th) will also be dedicated to preparedness. Topics will depend on public interest, but here are some of the possible topics we can explore: edible native plants, best emergency food to have on hand, building emergency shelter, and sanitation.


*We have limited seating and RSVP is required. Depending on demand, we can plan out a repeat for future dates. Please do not register unless able attend.
