Are you prepared for the next disaster? From extreme weather to wildland fire, El Dorado County faces numerous potential risks. On Tuesday, August 19, 2014, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Greenwood Center, El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency – Animal Services and Public Health Preparedness and Response staff will conduct a presentation to help community members prepare themselves, their families and pets to respond when disasters happen.  The Greenwood Center is located at 4401 Highway 193 in Greenwood.

“When citizens prepare themselves ahead of time, they build stronger, more resilient communities and can better deal with an emergency when it occurs,” said Kristine Oase Guth, Public Health Preparedness and Response Program Manager. “Residents are invited to come learn about the types of disasters that occur in El Dorado County, what to pack in emergency kits, how to develop a family communications plan, and how to become involved in community readiness.”

The presentation is open to the general community and offered free of charge.  For more information, please contact the El Dorado County Senior Information and Assistance Program at (530) 621-6251.
