Personal Emergency Preparedness
EMERGENCY RESPONSE PREPARATION PRESENTATION
What’s scarier than being in an emergency situation? Not knowing what to do.
Join us for a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) program and PEP (Personal Emergency Preparedness) presentation to help educate Truckee-area residents about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact our area. Save the date/time on your calendar and look for a zoom invite/email blast the prior week. While emergencies may not be common, having basic knowledge of how to react can be a matter of life and death for you, your family or your neighbors. Instead of becoming overwhelmed, learn the tools needed to stay calm, cool and a voice of reason in an otherwise hectic time. The first 72 hours following a local disaster are critical, so whether dealing with an evacuation or something altogether different, you can become a driving force in your community to prepare and ensure safety in the face of an unprecedented situation.
A PEP presentation covers:
- Types of disasters
- Notification systems
- Home and workplace preparedness
- In-home disaster supply kits
- Mobile disaster supply kits
- Family communication plans
- Portable critical document plans
- NIXLE notifications through your data provider (if you aren’t already signed up)
This presentation will be hosted by the Truckee Fire Protection District CERT team in partnership with the SLPOA Safety Committee. Individuals who live or work within Serene Lakes are welcome to participate. Cost is free. All participants will receive their own "go bag" compliments of Truckee Fire. Save the date, look for the email blast!
