How to Get Prepared for 3 Days....and Beyond

You've heard about the risk of the Cascadia earthquake. You know you should be prepared, but don't know where to start? You're not alone! Did you know it's actually harder to get prepared for those first 3 days than for two weeks? I will show you how to jump start your prep kit, it can be done, and it can be fun! 
Presented by the Forest Grove Fire and Rescue, Stacy Metzger is a support volunteer and coordinator of the Forest Grove Map Your Neighborhood program.

There will also be an introduction to the Forest Grove Map Your Neighborhood program- it's a program that helps get your neighbors together to make a plan before a disaster hits. When there's an earthquake or other disaster, our first responders will not be able to help everyone right away, and we will be dependent on our neighbors. You will also learn the important steps to take in the first hours and days after an earthquake to keep yourself, your family and your neighborhood safe. If you've been curious about the program, how's the chance to learn more about it. Other participants in FG MYN program will be there to answer your questions!
