On March 15th, over 85 people came out in the rain to learn about emergency plans for NE Seattle and learn one way to organize individual blocks for emergencies. The meeting, hosted by the WCC and Sustainable NE Seattle, included an overview of Seattle’s emergency pyramid. We had 50 people sign up to host their own block party, during which neighbors come together in a simple process to share information, get to know each other, and plan simple steps to take in the event of an emergency.
If you missed the meeting and are interested in organizing your block, please email NESeattlePrepares@gmail.com and we’ll do our best to help.
Thanks to all who came to the meeting, plus Speakers Theresa Edwards and Mark Howard. Also special thanks to Sara Lang, Joanne Kerr, JoAnn Keenan and all the folks who helped organize.
