by | Feb 28, 2018 | Event

You are invited to attend a Disaster Readiness program on Wednesday, March 7 at the Community Center in City Park. Althea Rizzo from the Oregon Department of Emergency Management will be making the presentations. There are two sessions, and you are invited to attend one or both.

Please invite your Board of Directors and others in your chain of command as we want as many community leaders as possible to attend. The general public has an earlier session just for them and will not be invited to these two session.
