Emergency Preparedness & Go Kit Distribution (RSVP Required)

May 14 @ 11:00 am

This event is sold out.  If you are interested to be put on a wait-list, or to be contacted for their next presentation, please email sgibb@chaffeecounty.org or call 719-207-6563.

Chaffee County Public Health (CCPH) is excited to announce that due to high demand and a sold out event in March at the library in Salida, CCPH will be presenting a workshop on emergency preparedness
and go- kit distribution open to all ages at A Church in Salida on Tuesday, May 14th from 11am-noon. The workshop will be presented by CCPH Emergency Preparedness and Response Coordinator, Sophia Gibb,
and CCPH Director, Andrea Carlstrom.
The go-kits include essential items and necessary supplies that you can easily grab during an emergency. Supplies include: flashlights, water bottles, and first aid kits. Recipients would put all supplies in a
backpack or “Go-Bag” to easily grab in case of an emergency like a wildfire. There will also be information presented on evacuation checklists, insurance coverage, preparing pets for disaster, and
much more.
“Chaffee County Public Health is excited to be able to offer this presentation again, due to the high demand we had for the initial presentation. It is crucial that every household has a go-kit ready in case of
emergency. We hope that all Chaffee County residents who are interested in what to do and what to bring during an emergency will register to attend. Free go-kits will be available for those who register for
the event” says Sophia Gibb, CCPH Emergency Preparedness and Response Coordinator.

For more information and to reserve your spot at the Emergency Preparedness Workshop and Go-Kit Distribution at A Church on May 14th, please contact Sophia Gibb at sgibb@chaffeecounty.org or
719-207-6563. Space is limited to the first 30 people.
