Community Disaster Education: Preparing for the Inevitable

We will have more fires, mudslides, floods and earthquakes. The 10l will be closed again, 154 shut down and a calamity could happen at the airport. This presentation will help you become aware of and prepare for the natural and human-caused hazards that threaten our area. You will learn how to better protect yourself, your family, housemates, pets and property. You will see why you need a “go bag”, an emergency meeting place for family and friends and an out of state point of contact. Bring your concerns and leave with your own disaster preparedness plan.

Contact the Campus Emergency Manager Jim Caesar at james.caesar@ucsb.edu to provide this one-hour training at a staff meeting or another campus function.
