With the recent increase in extreme weather, religious prophecies and political unrest, eminent doom for humankind is a popular topic for conversation these days. The good news is that regardless of whether or not the sky is actually falling, and regardless of what will make it fall, there are practical ways to prepare, as individuals and together as a community, in case of a short- or long-term crisis.
On Monday, Sept. 24, the Blue Sage Center for the Arts' "Valley Voices" series presents a talk entitled "Weathering Any Storm: Exploring Personal and Community Readiness." The talk will take place at the Blue Sage in Paonia from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
The talk will be presented by Liz and Kalvin Evans, who have previously taught classes on various types of emergency preparedness and have an extensive background in the field, in part based on their work while in the U.S. Air Force. They will focus on several aspects of personal preparedness, as well as how community members can work together to create the best-case scenario in either short- or long- term crisis.blog comments powered by Disqus
