A Free Opportunity to Learn About Disaster Preparedness

In Kirkland WA, Safety and Disaster Preparedness on December 6, 2010 at 11:05 pm

This is important!  Here’s a free opportunity to learn more about how to handle disasters if one happens in our Kirkland community.  Best of all, you can learn about this by sitting in front of your computer.  The following is the press release from Robin Pasteur.


“Formidable Footprint”
A Neighborhood Tabletop Exercise

December 8, 2010
For its last program for 2010, is pleased to host a one hour presentation and interactive discussion Wednesday, December 8, 2010, beginning at 9:00 AM. Our topic will be the “Formidable Footprint” series of community exercises developed, facilitated, and evaluated by a team of national, regional, and state organizations under the leadership of the Disaster Resistant Communities Group. This exercise series is open to neighborhood groups at no charge and is conducted via the Internet-based application, the ON-Line eXercise (ONX) System. Our program will feature a live demonstration of elements included in the exercise scenario.

Our guest will be Chris Floyd, Principal with the Disaster Resistant Communities Group, and formerly Chief Operations Officer with the Florida Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross. Mr. Floyd has over 31 years of experience providing disaster planning and preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation activities and, over the course of his career, has delivered hundreds of Disaster Services training courses designed to prepare thousands of volunteers to assist their community when disaster strikes.

Please make plans to join us, and see the Background Page for related materials and Instructions. If this will be your first time to participate, please check your connection at least a day in advance by clicking on the Live Meeting Login link. The Live Meeting client must be used in order to access the audio and view the demo.
