What should you do if a fire, flood, earthquake or some other disaster or emergency hits your community?
To answer that question, the Menlo Park Fire Protection District will host a free two-hour class covering the basics of what to do before, during and after a major emergency.
The class will be held Monday, April 25, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the USGS Survey meeting room at 345 Middlefield Road in Menlo Park.
Topics to be covered include how to create a disaster plan for home or office, how to assemble a portable disaster supply kit, how to use a fire extinguisher and when and how to shut off the gas.
The fire district also offers free presentations to groups of 20 or more. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to schedule a session.
