Training for Before, During and After a Disaster
Marin’s disaster response professionals emphasize the critical importance that all Marin residents be prepared to survive for at least 72 hours, and preferably 5-7 days, in their homes following a disaster. This first line of defense, called “Shelter in Place,” will save more lives than any other personal preparedness effort, but you need to plan ahead with supplies to survive. The Get Ready class, offered throughout Marin County, will help you plan for an emergency with a family plan, evacuation checklist, and strategies to keep your family safe. Marin public safety agencies offer this two-hour course to teach you what to do before, during and after a disaster.
The training is scheduled in many communities throughout the year or can be requested by a resident and held at your local fire department, community center, or in your own home. Your family, your neighbors and your community all depend on individual preparedness to survive the inevitable disaster and this is an excellent opportunity to learn together. You may attend a Get Ready class anywhere in Marin! Scroll down to the bottom of this page for a list of Get Ready contacts in Marin County.
