King County holding Disaster Skills Workshop at White Center Library Feb. 8

King County will be holding a Disaster Skills Workshop at the White Center Library on Thursday, Feb. 8, from 6:30 – 8 p.m.

Here are details from the county:

King County is prone to many hazards, and when one happens many services we rely on will be overwhelmed. It may be difficult for residents to travel or communicate.

Residents need to be prepared to be self-sufficient during these times. Understanding of disaster skills is critical to being prepared.

This workshop will provide an overview on hazards and the certain skills needed after a disaster. We’ll cover topics related to: local hazards, utility control, water storage/purification, emergency sanitation and creating emergency plans.
