Learn about neighborhood disaster preparedness at P.R. Community Council meeting

The Phinney Ridge Community Council will discuss neighborhood readiness for natural disasters at its next meeting at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, May 20, at the Phinney Neighborhood Center.

You might have water stockpiled in the basement and your hand-crank flashlight poised for action. But when the earth moves or some other disaster strikes Seattle, have you thought about how the Phinney-Greenwood community will fare? None of us can really go it alone, so neighbors across the city are developing community-level plans for disaster preparedness. Join the Phinney Ridge Community Council (PRCC) at its annual meeting on Thursday, May 20, to learn how our neighborhoods can prepare for an emergency.

The meeting starts at 6:30 with pizza and socializing. The formal program starts at 7 p.m. with a presentation by Seattle Office of Emergency Management’s Mark Howard. Participants will have plenty of time to ask questions and raise issues for the PRCC to explore. PRCC board members will also be elected.
