National Emergency Preparedness Week - Are You Ready? Sat May 12

May 7th to May 13th is National Emergency Preparedness Week!

Join us on Saturday May 12th from 11am through 1pm at the Fire Hall. Mayne Island Emergency Program & Mayne Island Fire Department are offering training in the use of fire extinguishers and disaster first aid.

Two hands on workshops will be presented:
Fire Extinguishers: You will gain experience putting out fires in a controlled setting and what you need to know about fire extinguishers, and
Disaster First Aid: You will learn how to deal with injuries before help arrives in the event of a large scale disaster when help could be delayed getting to you.

Each workshop will be presented twice, once at 11am and again at 1pm so you can take both.

Cost: free!
