Here we are in this lovely, idyllic place. It’s hard to think about disasters to which we are subject –earthquakes, fires, tsunamis, and hazardous material spills. Your Emergency Management Organization has been encouraging you to get prepared to support yourself for 3 weeks due to our relatively remote location. Well, it’s a little like eating an elephant…..one bite at a time.

Join us on March 9 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Bay Club and we will finally fill you in on the details of how to go about preparing for that which we hope will never happen. After most disasters, it has been found that the people who are impacted the least are the ones who had prepared ahead of time. Our speakers are prepared to provide you with new and updated information from the American Red Cross that will increase your chances of surviving most any widespread emergency situation.

In addition, but directly related, the Citizens for Safe Students will have Emergency Subsistance Kits available for a donation of $22. Each kit will provide one person with food and water for three days and from each donation a kit will be provided to the Chimacum Schools for a student there. Bring cash, check or credit card to help out the kids as well as yourself.

This event is open to all Port Ludlow Residents!
