The Phinney Neighborhood Association is offering a free class by the American Red Cross on how to prepare for a major winter storm. “Take Winter by Storm” is from 7-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the PNA, 6532 Phinney Ave. N. Call 206-783-2244 to register.
The Red Cross says everyone should take these three steps to be prepared:
- Create an emergency preparedness kit with at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food and water for your home and office. Kits prepared for vehicle road travel and winter weather evacuation go-kits are also advised.
- Make a plan and practice the plan with your family and those who depend on you.
- Stay informed and know the weather approaching so you are prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws our way.
You can find lots more information on emergency preparedness on the Take Winter by Storm website, and you can also sign up for email, phone or text emergency alerts.
