With winter rains hitting the West Valley, we may be our of fire season for now, but mudslides, earthquakes, and other disasters are always a threat.
To help families prepare for these situations and more, the Santa Clara Fire Department is hosting a free emergency preparedness class this coming week in Cupertino.
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 Quinlan Community Center’s Social Room in Cupertino, 10185 N. Stelling Rd.
The free training, set for 6 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. on Tuesday, December 3, 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, prepare for responding at a workplace, and instruct attendees on how to build their own disaster supply kits.
The class is not recommended for those under 13 years of age.
