Come join us this year to talk through how we will all respond when the unexpected strikes. While last year’s summit was focused on how to prepare as a household before disaster strikes, this year will focus more on the likely challenges and resources that we will see following an event such as an earthquake, extreme weather event, or other large scale incident. By mapping out a framework of neighborhood response, we will all benefit by knowing a bit of what we can expect along with the kinds of resources that will be available following a disaster.
Doors open at 9:30AM.
Bring your “Go Bag” a.k.a. “Bug-Out Bag” to the summit. This is an opportunity to make sure your bag is up-to-date, practice with it a bit, and compare your’s with your neighbors!
