The Washington Emergency Management Division is hosting a public preparedness webinar on July 21 to talk about how to prepare for all hazards during COVID-19. Topics include financial preparedness, mental health support, online safety and about strategically shopping, not over-buying.
“It is important to consistently prepare over time rather than one large shopping trip once a disaster has happened,” says Kiana Kabanje, Disaster Preparedness Outreach Program Manager for the state agency. “Strategic shopping for a few extra supplies each time you go to the store allows everyone to access the supplies they need.”
The event is free, taking place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., on Tuesday, July 21. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.
Joining our agency are officials from Bellevue Office of Emergency Management, Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management, the emergency management division for the city of Marysville and a public health expert from Eastern Washington.
