Starter emergency supply kits for low income families

The Pacific County Emergency Management Agency will be hosting an emergency supply event to distribute starter emergency supply kits to low income families in Pacific County.

Those who attend will learn how to respond to a disaster, as well as how to use the supplies in their kits. Everyone is encouraged to attend this training, but kits are limited to the first 20 residents who meet specified income levels.

Supplies to create these kits were donated by Pacific County residents in a disaster preparedness supply drive that was held in January. Supplies gathered include 101 bottles of water, 26 flashlights, 13 fleece blankets, 50 knit hats, and many others.

The event will be held at the North Willapa Harbor Grange, at 3198 State Rt. 105, , WA, on Thursday, May 30, 2013 at 6:00 p.m.
