FVCC Holds Free Emergency Preparedness Training

Flathead Valley Community College invites the campus and area communities to attend one of two free Community College Citizen Preparedness Training workshops it will present in honor of National Preparedness Month.
Presented by FVCC Campus Emergency Coordinator Kris Long, the training will provide a step-by-step approach to learning about local emergency plans, identifying hazards that affect the local area and developing a disaster plan and supplies kit. Other topics covered will include evacuation, emergency public shelters, animals in disaster and information specific to people with disabilities.
“This training will cover how to prepare for all kinds of disasters, from earthquakes to house fires,” said Service Learning Coordinator Wendy Jeschke. “Everyone can benefit from this type of life-saving information.”
Sponsored by the FVCC Service Learning program, the training will be offered September 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. and September 16 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in room 144 inside the Arts and Technology Building on the college’s Kalispell campus. Seating is limited, and reservations are encouraged.
Those who attend will be eligible to win door prizes, including a one-person 72-hour Lifeline Disaster Kit.
The workshops are supported by a 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service and Montana Campus Compact.
Contact Jeschke at 756-3908 or for more information or to reserve your seat.
