Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center is offering a class to help
families prepare for emergencies on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 3 p.m. or 6
p.m. Each class will be held in the Shavano Room of the Touber Building,
441 E. First St., Salida.
Participants will learn how to create a family disaster plan, communicate
with one another when phones are down, make a family-disaster supplies
kit, and more.
"Natural disasters are becoming more powerful, more destructive and
more deadly. The only way we can combat these disasters, protect our loved
ones and dependents, and recover afterward is by preparing ahead of time,”
said HRRMC Emergency Management Coordinator Mark Rowland.
"The fundamentals are simple: Have a plan, make a kit and practice
with your family.”
The class is open to the general public, and community members are asked
to RSVP by Wednesday, Sept. 26.
