Cupertino to host free emergency prep class

To help local residents prepare for emergency and disaster situations, Cupertino officials are set to host a free preparedness workshop later this week.

As fire season is underway, and with the persistent threat of earthquakes and flash flooding, the workshop will teach attendees how to get ready for multiple situations, including developing emergency plans, how and when to turn off natural gas, fire extinguisher use, and an overview of the City’s emergency plan.

Cupertino’s session, a repeat of one hosted by the city last month is similar to those held by other cities in our region in recent months and is free to attend.

This week’s workshop is Thursday, September 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. Cupertino City Hall’s Emergency Operations Center, 10300 Torre Ave., will host the event.
