West Seattle Be Prepared launched a new Training and Education Series in 2010 with the intent of making West Seattle citizens the most educated, well-trained and most prepared community in the area! This series features informative lectures, hands-on training, panel discussions and presentations by agencies and city services; presenters will speak not only to their plans for Seattle, but more specifically to the plans for West Seattle. What resources will be available? What resources or training do we still need?
Topics include medical options for West Seattle during an emergency; the local emergency procedures and plans of West Seattle Fire Department Battalion 7; and how radios, social media and technology can be used. We’ll focus on concerns that many of us have: disaster preparedness for vulnerable populations, which include children and seniors, psychological (as well as physical) first aid, pet preparedness and pet first aid, and more! The series kicked off on Thursday, April 7th with a presentation and some training by the King County Red Cross.
If you have additional training or presentation suggestions, or if you are able to donate your time/training as a presenter, please contact email@example.com.
