Richmond District Earthquake & Tsunami Preparedness Workshop

Full Description:
To kick-off National Tsunami Week, Richmond District Supervisor, Sandra Lee Fewer, in partnership with the Community Youth Center of San Francisco, the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management, and the San Francisco Fire Department Neighborhood Emergency Response Team Program, are presenting a two hour event so residents can learn how to be prepared for an earthquake, tsunami, or other natural disasters in San Francisco. The event will begin with a one hour workshop on disaster scenarios and how to prepare for them, followed by interactive demonstrations to teach residents basic first aid skills, how to use a fire extinguisher, how to sign up for NERT, how to receive emergency alerts from Alert SF, and how to create their own emergency preparedness plan. Cantonese, Russian, and Spanish interpreters will be present.
