For one of the attendees of our Emergency Preparedness classes, evacuation was real!
. . . I had been hearing it is important to prepare for a wildfire for years, but put it off – it always seemed very daunting and I didn’t know where to start. Sierra Foothills Village provided a great webinar and broke the process down into four easy steps. They even helped me set up the alerts on my mobile phone and demonstrated how to pack my Go Bag. I was evacuated shortly after the class and felt prepared.
