Please join the Northeast District Council for an Emergency Preparedness meeting, from 7 – 9 PM on Thursday, May 3, 2018.

Ann Forrest, a volunteer with the City of Seattle SNAP Program, will present a program on how to organize our individual homes and how to organize our neighborhood blocks for emergencies.

And learn about some of the efforts of area neighborhoods, what they are doing to get organized, and how you can participate or learn more.
