The Seattle Emergency Management folks continue to stress the Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare program. SNAP involves local citizens and neighborhood associations doing three things to prepare for an emergency or disaster.
The three steps are:
- Store emergency drinking water
- Create an out-of-area contact
- Practice drop, cover and hold
Information is available in 14 languages on the Office of Emergency Management website, English-language material is available at http://www.seattle.gov/emergency/prepare/language/english.htm and the other 13 languages are available from that same website.
This campaign focuses on three easy steps that don’t take a lot of time, don’t cost a lot of money, and best of all, get people on their way to being safe and self-sufficient after any emergency or disaster. The more we prepare today, the less we’ll worry about later! For questions, give the Office of Emergency Management a call at 206-233-5076 for more information or go to the website.
Coming up for West Seattle is a SNAP class (personal preparedness and neighborhood organization) on Tuesday, June 8, 6:30 pm -7:45 pm, Delridge Branch Library, 5423 Delridge Way SW.[mappress]
