Manzanita’s Hoffman Center for the Arts will host a presentation on emergency preparedness this Tuesday, Nov. 14, led by Dr. Margaret Steele and Linda Cook of the Emergency Volunteer Corp.
The pair will discuss short-term emergencies such as power outages, floods and downed trees as well as major emergencies like tornados, earthquakes and tsunamis.
Dr. Steele will cover medical aspects of emergency preparedness, including stockpiling at least 30 days of medications, and how to personalize a first aid kit.
Cook will show two examples of go-bags as well as the supplies necessary to shelter in place for longer-term emergencies.
The presentation, part of the Art of Aging/of Dying series, will run from 3 to 5 pm at 594 Laneda Avenue. There is a $5 fee to attend.
