Learn about disaster survival at ‘May Your Neighborhood’ event

A “How to Map Your Neighborhood” presentation sponsored by the Interfaith Community of Clallam County explores the possibilities of community cooperation in the face of an emergency, set for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 301 East Lopez St., Port Angeles.

Map Your Neighborhood trainer Rae Leiper will present how to get started in preparation for events such as a predicted 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Earthquake and its aftermath.

Don Zanon, Red Cross instructor and coordinator of the Disaster Action Team for Clallam County, shares how some local congregations are already preparing and outline how other groups can help this effort in community cooperation.

Attendees receive materials to bring back to their neighborhood. They can also sign up to have a trainer come lead a 90-minute meeting in their neighborhood.

Discussion will follow both presentations, including how to take the next steps.

The event is the first in a series of presentations on Community Cooperation.
