    Emergency Preparedness: It's in The (Go) Bag


    Rebecca Chatfield, PhD

    Paul Thomsen

    A few years ago FEMA suggested people should be “Three Days Ready” to take care of themselves after a disaster, but now the official advice is “Two Weeks Ready”.  What does that mean, and why did FEMA lengthen the timeframe? What items do you need for two weeks or longer? Learn what you REALLY need stored in your house, car, workplace, or place of worship to help make it through any disaster scenario.  We will have Show and Tell of various types of kits and also discuss how to build great disaster kits on a budget.


    October 2, 2018



    Mr. Thomsen is a volunteer who works with the Bellevue City Office of Emergency Management, assisting with a variety of activities including Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training, radio communications, and community outreach such as today's presentation. He has taken emergency preparedness seriously for years, building on a variety of formal training and related experience including mountaineering.

    Dr. Chatfield educates the public about Emergency Preparedness in conjunction with the Bellevue Citizen Corps in the Office of Emergency Management, helping people, neighborhoods, small businesses and non-profits learn how to be resilient when the unexpected happens. Good plans and preparation can help reduce the impact of a severe event like a storm, an earthquake, or a prolonged power outage. Rebecca enjoys teaching classes that inspire people to talk to each other, make and practice useful plans, and play with fun equipment - all in the name of disaster preparedness.
