The instructor for Living on Shaky Ground: How to Survive Earthquakes and Tsunamis in Northern California is Judy Warren, who survived the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake as well as every natural disaster in Humboldt County since 2000. She teaches preparedness in coordination with local agencies and can answer those questions about ways to mitigate hazards, reduce injuries and recover more quickly.
This basic introductory course provides a hazards overview, lists for disaster supplies kits and best practices for tsunami awareness. The course will be presented on Monday, Sept. 24, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at the Community Presbyterian Church, 437 Maple Lane, Garberville. The class is open to the public at no charge, but seating is limited. Please call 499-0754 to reserve your seat.
This event is presented to the community in the interest of public safety and community preparedness by the Community Presbyterian Church of Garberville, the California Emergency Management Agency, and Humboldt State University’s Regional Training Institute - Community Disaster Preparedness.
