Dear Salt Lake City Community Members,

The 4th Quarter 2012 Community Preparedness Workshop (formerly Community Emergency Response Coordination Workshop) has been scheduled. Please join us at the workshop on Saturday, November 10, 2012. Continental breakfast will be offered at 8:00 am. Welcome and opening address will begin at 8:30. This workshop will include a presentation from JaLae Thompson, Emergency Services Manager, American Red Cross – Greater Salt Lake Area Chapter, about community involvement in the Salt Lake City Mass Care Strategy.

John Flynt, Community Preparedness Coordinator for the Salt Lake City Office of Emergency Management will brief workshop attendees on Salt Lake City government’s participation in the ShakeOut providing lessons learned, planning for the future, and projects that are being implemented as a result of the findings. The office of Emergency Management will also be bringing equipment to issue CERT member ID badges. If you wish to receive your ID please bring proof of CERT course completion. For those who have completed any NIMS ICS courses or who are hold current HAM licenses, proof will be required to add these certifications to your ID.

Though CERT Team and Mobile Watch members are strongly encouraged to attend, this workshop is for any individuals, families, civic, religious, or volunteer groups interested in community preparedness in Salt Lake City. It is vital that we coordinate in a unified effort among all groups and organizations to successfully prepare and protect our city.

We ask the community councils for assistance in finding and encouraging representatives in every neighborhood to participate in these efforts.  Didn’t attend the previous workshops? No problem. Please join us at this one! Pass this on to anyone you feel would have an interest in emergency response.
