The Menlo Park Fire Protection District and USGS are combining forces to hold a two-hour basic emergency preparedness class on Wed., April 29, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Residents will learn about local disasters and how to protect yourself, your family and your neighborhood. You RSVP online for the free class.

USGS scientist Steve Walter will be speaking about earthquakes. It’s not “if” but “when” the next earthquake is going to happen. Menlo Park Fire Protection District will help you get better prepared for a disaster.

Do you have a disaster plan? Do you have a disaster kit? Do you know how to shut off your utilities? Did you know 75% of all calls to our local dispatch after Loma Prieta were “how and when do I shut off my gas”.

The class will take place at the William Rambo Auditorium, 2nd FL, U.S. Geological Survey, 345 Middlefield Road, Menlo Park.
