Emergency sessions teach preparation

Earthquake preparedness topic of workshop

If the big one were to strike, you’d need to survive on your own for seven days.

To learn how to do so, consider attending a free emergency preparedness workshop on Tuesday (Sept. 20) from 7 to 9 p.m. at Windsor Park pavilion, 2451 Windsor Rd.

Experts will walk you through what supplies to stash away now in case of disaster. To register, call 250-592-9121.

Seniors can also sign up for a workshop designed just for them, to be held Wednesday, Oct. 5 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Monterey Recreation Centre.

Participants will learn the importance of a buddy system and will receive free items to add to a grab-and-go bag. Call 250-370-7300 to register.
