There’s no obligation, no commitment and no dues, so feel free to drop by. More details will follow as the date gets closer.
The emergency preparedness committee invites you to participate on its monthly meeting. The next meeting will be held via Zoom on Thursday April 13th at 7:00 PM
Charlie Margolis with help from Joseph Joy presented the first month of the Emergency Preparedness calendar(https://mil.wa.gov/asset/5f171cc0a935f) on March 10. “Communication” was a good step to preparing your family for an emergency
They are now preparing for the second month on April 14, 2022 at 7pm-8pm, “Action Plan” from the same resource. Getting together and talking about it opens the scope and makes things more doable. Each month is further expanded on https://mil.wa.gov/personal with multiple language information provided. Viewing the information on the website was very enlightening and the discussion we got expanded that information even further.
We will discuss upcoming information and what we will be doing besides the emergency preparedness calendar, like the neighborhood walk about and the walkie-talkie protocol.
Please be aware the next board meeting will be held on Tuesday February 15th at 7:00 pm. Everyone is invited to attend the meeting and participate in the discussion.
