The Port Ludlow Village Council Emergency Management Committee (PLVC-EM) will host STEPUP, a two-part “Special Training in Emergency Preparedness for Unique People”, on Monday, September 18, from 1pm-4pm, at the Beach Club, and 1pm-4pm, Wednesday, September 20, at the Bay Club. Unique people in this context are those with disabilities, Senior Citizens and the vulnerable population

Deb Reithmeyer, Program Coordinator for Jefferson County Department of Emergency Management (JCDEM), will facilitate the two-part workshop that will cover many unique topics, including sheltering in place, caring for your service animal or pet during a disaster, compiling your important documents prior to a disaster, among other related topics.

STEPUP is sponsored by the JCDEM and offered free of charge. However, seating is limited at both venues, so please pre-register today with Deb at dreithmeyer@co.jefferson.wa.us or 360-344-9728 so she knows how many people to expect. There will be a drawing for a Stuffed Grab and Go Backpacks at each session, but you must be present to win.
