Tonight: Disaster preparedness training in Menlo Park

 

A free two-hour emergency preparedness workshop will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 29, hosted by the Menlo Park Fire Protection District and the U.S. Geological Survey.

Scientist Steve Walter will speak about earthquakes. According to the fire district, 75 percent of the calls that came to the dispatcher after the Loma Prieta quake were about how to shut off a gas line.

The training starts at 6:30 p.m. on the second floor of the William Rambo Auditorium on the Menlo Park campus of USGS at 345 Middlefield Road.
