Los Altos PREPARE promotes emergency preparedness (Los Altos Town Crier)

The Los Altos Town Crier has a nice write up on Los Altos PREPARE.  The group will be hosting a free Intro to the Personal Emergency Preparedness program 3-4PM April 18 in the Los Altos City Council Chambers.


If the power fizzles, mobile networks die or families face separation in the aftermath of a natural disaster or emergency, one local advocate wants Los Altos residents to be prepared to bounce back by creating resilient neighborhood networks that function with or without the assistance of emergency responders.

“It’s not if it happens, but when,” said Los Altos resident Sherie Dodsworth, certified public accountant and entrepreneur, of her efforts to develop stronger neighborhood networks to communicate with the city and first responders when an emergency strikes.
