Hey everyone ... our own Steve Willey is presenting!!

LIVE Webinar:
Earthquake Preparedness – Lessons Learned from Haiti and California
Feb 18 @ 2pm ET

The Community Preparedness Webinar Series focuses on bringing together government and community leaders to involve citizens in all-hazards preparedness and resilience. The recent 7.0 earthquake that shook Haiti less than 800 miles from Miami, FL, has raised awareness that such an event could occur in America.

Presenting on the topics of education, preparedness, training, and community involvement will be Mark Benthien, Director for Communication, Education and Outreach (CEO) for the Southern California Earthquake Center and Executive Director of the Earthquake Country Alliance, and Steve Willey, a member of the Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue Team (Virginia Task Force 1) and a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) instructor for Fairfax County, VA.

The Community Preparedness Webinar Series features new community preparedness topics several times each month and is free to the public. Registration is not required to attend. Each webinar will accommodate the first 500 visitors that enter the website at the time of the webinar. In addition to airing live, the webinar will be recorded and viewable after it completes at your convenience.

If you need special accommodations or require additional assistance to view or listen to this webinar, please email citizencorps@dhs.gov no later than 5pm EST on Tuesday, February 16th.
