EUGENE, Ore. — Ever wonder how to deal with a major disaster? There’s now a chance to beef up those survival skills. The City of Eugene Emergency Management Program and the Eugene-Springfield Community Emergency Response Team is offering a disaster preparedness training class.
Organizers say when there’s a major catastrophe, first responders aren’t always able to help everyone.
“Ultimately, it comes down to taking care of yourself. The things that we teach are inexpensive. We try to teach people how to plan regardless of budget, whatever they can do and it’s really simple stuff that takes a little bit of time,” said emergency manager Jason York.
The disaster preparedness class will be on Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. at the Emergency Services Building, 1705 West 2nd Ave.
