May agenda

This Thursday night we’ll have a chance to meet and talk with Richmond’s new Emergency Services Manager, Jim Yoke.

He’ll be sharing some of the new emergency preparedness activities he’s working on, and talk about the city’s role after a disaster through the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and the role of the neighborhoods.

Other topics we expect to hear more about are:
The importance of neighborhoods having Incident Command Posts (ICPs)
The importance of communication and the use of radios at the ICPs
Upcoming training classes for the community (attached)
What’s most important to do now to get prepared
As East Richmond emergency radio network leaders, David Swanson and Diane Richwine, often remind us, “It’s not if, but when, we get a major earthquake.” Jim brings twenty years of experience in the field and is a very engaging speaker. Please make time in your busy schedules to join in.
