Seattle Emergency Management Hosts Spring Training
Preparedness Classes Target Seattle Neighborhoods, Small Sparks Awards

The Seattle Office of Emergency Management is pleased to announce its spring line-up of community preparedness classes. The classes, held free of charge, focus on personal preparedness and the city's new SNAP program, a way to organize your neighborhood for emergencies and other disasters.

Residents who organize a SNAP group may also benefit from the city's Small Sparks Award program. Through a new partnership with the city's Department of Neighborhoods, registered SNAP groups could apply for initial funding to help with skills training or emergency supplies.

Residents wanting to add to their preparedness skills may also sign up for a two-hour fire extinguisher class on June 9. Two sessions will be held that day. Cost is $10. Registration must be completed through the Office of Emergency Management.
