The MCC invites all neighbors to attend the SNAP emergency preparedness community organizing meeting on Thursday, Feb. 9, from 7:00-8:30pm at the Madrona K-8 school library. As detailed in the January Madrona News, SNAP stands for “Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare” and is a part of the Office of Emergency Management (OEM). The premise of SNAP is that neighborhoods should be self-sufficient for three days following a major disaster when 911 emergency response services are typically unavailable.
On Feb. 9 a trainer from SNAP will provide:
- step-by-step checklists to help attendees prepare a family disaster plan
- information about how neighbors can form groups, designate a leader and register with the Seattle OEM
Bring your emergency preparedness questions and learn more about how to better prepare your family, your block, and our community for a potential disaster.
