Fairview Offers Disaster Preparedness Seminar

You have likely heard about the “Big One,” an earthquake of substantial magnitude called Cascadia that is due to strike in the Pacific Northwest. This earthquake will cause significant damage and disruption. This upcoming FREE two-class series is a presentation designed to provide you with the information you need to build your level of preparedness.

Preparedness begins with understanding your risks.  From that foundation you can determine your plan of action and begin building your level of preparedness to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community and/or business. 

These two evening presentations will cover:

  • The impacts of disasters
  • Roles of government and the public
  • Opportunities for connecting into the response and recovery system
  • How to enhance your disaster resilience by building community connections
  • How to develop your personal disaster response and recovery plan
  • Ways to put together disaster supplies
