TOGETHER WE PREPARE - The Sonoma County Emergency Preparedness Event needs you!
Join our town meeting to facilitate emergency preparedness education with all of the important agencies present so that we, as an area can be prepared.
This is a family event. There will be something for everyone: videos, a panel discussion, booths, a raffle, a bake sale, and presentations!
April is Earthquake Preparedness month and this is our time to learn about preparedness from:
- The American Red Cross (Sonoma County Chapter) is bringing their Emergency Preparedness Vehicle and displaying items that they suggest having as disaster supplies
- Members of the Red Cross’ local Disaster Action Team introduces the concept of SELF-PREPAREDNESS
- A special American Red Cross program for children, "Disaster Dudes" teaches children how to be prepared and how to teach their friends about becoming prepared. "Disaster Dudes" will be offered during the afternoon to children who sign up in advance and whose parents are there to learn with them. Contact us to sign up. SPACE IS LIMITED for Disaster Dudes, so register early!
