OCCC presents free Disaster Preparedness class
Are you prepared for a natural disaster? Is your family ready to live comfortably without power, transportation and access to grocery stores and gas stations for a few days, or even weeks? Is your business ready to survive such a disruption?
On Thursday, July 30, Captain Jim Kusz of the North Lincoln Fire and Rescue District will present a free disaster preparedness workshop at Oregon Coast Community College’s North County Center in Lincoln City, off High School Drive.
Everyone is invited to this free class. “We are hoping locals will be joined by part-year area residents here for the summer, as well as visitors passing through,” said OCCC’s community education director, Dave Price. “This class not only talks about how to be prepared, but it talks about why we need to be. Jim explains in easy-to-understand terms the risks faced by the Oregon Coast, including the Cascadia Subduction Zone, the risk of destructive storms and tsunamis caused by distant earthquakes, and much more.”
The July 30 workshop will be held at Oregon Coast Community College, at 3788 SE High School Drive, in Lincoln City. Admission is free, but pre-registration is required. To reserve a space, call 541-994-4166 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
