Neighborhood Watch- Family Disaster Preparedness Class

22 Apr

Family Disaster Preparedness Class

Our neighbor, John Kane, Managing Director of D-Prep, LLC, conducted a free 1-hour class on Disaster Preparedness on Tuesday, March 7th from 7-8 PM at the Robbie Waters Library Community Room, 7335 Gloria Drive, Sacramento, CA 95831.

The class was very informative and covered these main topics:

  • The Hazards and Threats We Face in the Sacramento Area
  • Assessing Your Level of Preparedness
  • Specific Things You Can Do At Your: Home-Car-and Workplace

One of the eye-opening facts conveyed was that typically there are only 30 uniform police officers on duty during the day shift to cover over 600,000 combined workers and residents! If a major disaster hits us you must be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for at least 72 hours which could stretch easily into 2 or more weeks.

An extremely useful handout including a critical item checklist was included with attendance at the presentation attendance and can also be accessed at our SPHA website here.  HOME and Bldg Mgr Prep Doc 2015
