After a rainy winter, California could be facing another active fire season. And our region is always at risk for a disruptive earthquake.

To help families prepare for these situations and more, the Santa Clara Fire Department is hosting a free emergency preparedness class in Campbell.

Open to those who live or work in Campbell, Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, and Saratoga, the Department will hold this event at Campbell Community Center, 1 West Campbell Ave., on Wednesday June 12.

The training, set for 4 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. will teach attendees how to prepare for, and survive, the first three days after a disaster – often a normal time for services to return.

In addition to fire and earthquake readiness, the class will teach some basic skills to help treat life-threatening conditions, and instruct attendees on how to build their own disaster supply kits.

The class is not recommended for those under 13 years of age.
