A. “County plans class on preparedness”
“Thurston County is offering a class on how to prepare for disaster.
A neighborhood preparedness class is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25 at the county’s Emergency Operations Center, 2703 Pacific Ave., Olympia.
The free two-hour class is based on the principle that following a major disaster, the most immediate source of help is one’s neighbors.
Topics include identification of neighborhood skills and equipment, nine steps to take immediately following a disaster, neighborhood contact lists and identifying locations of natural gas and propane tanks.
To register for the class, send your name, phone number and agency or neighborhood to Vivian Eason at easonv@
