Emergency Preparedness Presented by Collaborating Agencies Responding to Disaster.

On Monday, March 10th a 6.9 earthquake struck offshore in Northern California near Eureka. While no one was injured this event conjures up thoughts about “the Big One” or some other disasters we should prepare for. Our next guest speaker will help us explore these and other questions regarding emergency preparedness.
