Register Now for the Free NEMCo Emergency Preparedness Workshop – October 8 & 10, 2020

Are you ready for the next big winter storm, earthquake, or other disaster? If not, in early October, the Northshore Emergency Management Coalition (NEMCo) is holding a free three-hour workshop on emergency preparedness.

This year’s workshop is a little different, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first two hours are online, with the last hour being an in-person class. The online session runs from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 8; the in-person portion runs from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 10, at the Northshore Fire Headquarters Station, 7220 NE 181st Street, Kenmore 98028.

During the class, you will receive training on:

  • Creating a plan for you and your family
  • Building an emergency kit
  • Locating and shutting off utilities
  • Safe use of your fire extinguisher

Please note the hands on portion of the training is optional and the following COVID-19 precautions are followed:

  • No one is allowed to participate if they are running a fever or showing signs of COVID-19
  • All participants will be screened at check-in the day of the event
  • Face coverings are required
  • Groups will be limited to no more than five people per “hands-on station” at a time
  • All tools/equipment will be sanitized between users
