FROM COUNTY COMMISSIONER ROMERO’S e-mailer:
Please join Thurston County Commissioner Sandra Romero, as she hosts her monthly informal coffee hours in Rainier and Yelm on Monday, October 28th:
Commissioner Romeros County Fair Coffee Talk
On Monday, October 28, join Commissioner Romero and her guest, Thurston County Emergency Manager, Kathy Estes, for coffee, and learn about how the county prepares for disasters and what you can do to stay safe.
Thurston Countys Emergency Management department works hard to keep this community safe. This years catastrophic flooding in Colorado and local early season storms have been particularly grim reminders of our own flood risk. It is not always possible to provide immediate assistance to those affected by storms and flooding. Demand often exceeds available resources, leaving people on their own sometimes for days before outside help arrives.
Estes has worked in emergency management since 1999 and has been employed by Thurston County for 23 years. She will explain how you can prepare for winter hazards so your family is ready to weather any storm that comes our way.
There is a lot happening in Thurston County and we want to hear from you!
These coffees give you the opportunity to talk about issues of concern, ask the Commissioner questions about the county, and share ideas.
Commissioner Romero provides participants’ coffee that she pays for herself. She is the representative of District 2, which includes Yelm, Lacey, and Rainier.
