Snohomish County will host a disaster-preparedness class from 10:30 to noon on April 24 geared toward seniors and their needs during an emergency.

This free program provides a step-by-step approach to disaster preparedness by walking residents through information about local emergency plans, how to identify hazards that affect local areas and how to develop and maintain an emergency communications plan and disaster supplies kit.

Other topics covered include evacuation, emergency public shelters, animals during disasters and information specific to people with access and functional needs.

The class is presented by Snohomish County’s Department of Emergency Management and sponsored by The Everett Clinic, Snohomish County Long Term Care & Aging and the Snohomish County Council on Aging. It will be held  at Compass Health Administrative Offices at 4526 Federal Ave. in Everett.

Doors open at 10 a.m. Seating and parking are limited and the public is encouraged to RSVP in advance of the event at 425-388-7377 or j.frasu@snoco.org.
