Emergency Communications Made Simple

Monday, September 16, 2013 10:55 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Kirkland Greater Citizen Corps Council and CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) will be offering a series of speakers to further enhance the preparedness of Kirkland residents in the event of a disaster. The series is offered to CERT graduates and, when space permits, Kirkland families. 

The first class features ways to communicate with your family, friends, neighbors and authorities in the event of a natural disaster. 

The class will be held September 23, 2013 at 7:00 pm at Fire Station 26 (9930 124th Ave NE).

Cost for the class is $5. Registration forms are online at www.kirklandCERT.com and will need to be mailed in or dropped off at City Hall to be assured a space.

 Presenter is Andrew Baze, author of Personal Emergency Communications: Staying in Touch Post-Disaster: Technology, Gear, and Planning. He is director of OSD Risk Management at Microsoft.

 Mr. Baze will show you why radios should have a place in your home and neighborhood emergency preparedness plans. He will explain the ease of obtaining an amateur radio license, explain options and enable you to create an emergency communication plan.
