Emergency Preparedness Training Series

Disasters are never expected or wanted, but a way to ensure that you can handle it is to be prepared for when they come. That way, when the emergency is over, you can see the rainbow that will surely follow.

To help prepare for that, ECI provides monthly virtual ILS classes that will cover various topics that will help you prepare for the emergency that may occur. All those who attend will be mailed an item that will help you prepare your own Emergency Supply Kit. 

The next training will be Tuesday, April 27, 2021, from 11:00am – 12:00pm.

Register

This month’s topic is “Self-Assessment and Why It’s Important.” Attendees will receive a Self-Assessment Questionnaire for their emergency supply kit.

The class meets on the last Tuesday of each month from 11am to 12pm. Call Jeanette Flanders at 351-1570 for more information, and she can assist you with registering for the class.
