Learn Home Preparedness in Earthquake Country Tonight at the Mission Bay Branch Library
|June 11, 2008||Posted by jamie under Community Services||
Tonight from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., take advantage of a presentation at the Mission Bay library by Matt Springer, Assistant Professor of Medicine at UCSF, about precautions that can be taken to lessen the damage from an earthquake at home and work. His presentation includes many photos of preparations in his own home and suggests measures ranging from simple to complex to prepare for the next temblor.
Personally, I have an “earthquake kit” at home, but I still need to get something together at work. I should also plan a little better when I’m travelling around California and Nevada for work – especially for an upcoming business meeting in Reno, Nevada since they seem to be having all sorts of abnormal temblors lately.
Please do consider taking the complete training provided for free from the San Francisco Fire Department under the name of NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Team). The next training near the Rincon Hill neighborhood is scheduled for August. The training takes place at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on three Wednesdays in a row (August 14, 21, and 28) from 9:00am-4:00pm. See the flyer and RSVP today if interested – the classes do fill up. It is so important to have a plan and to be prepared before the disaster happens.
