The city of Boulder and Boulder County are hosting classes this month meant to better prepare residents to recover from personal emergencies and the impact of natural disasters.
“Our past experience in both fires and floods have demonstrated how important community preparation and mobilization is when these types of disaster hit,” Brett KenCairn, Boulder senior sustainability and resilience policy advisor, stated in a news release. “Having a few critical resources and relationships lined up ahead of time can make the difference between being someone who needs to be rescued to being someone who can help stabilize others.”
The classes, titled Better Together, will focus on disaster resilience, natural hazard identification and mitigation and a disaster scenario, the release stated.
They are scheduled from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on three consecutive Mondays, Oct. 14, Oct. 21 and Oct. 28, at the Creekside Theater in the West Senior Center, 909 Arapahoe Ave.
There is no cost, and dinner will be provided. Registration is required.
