Friday: Portola Valley focuses on disaster planning

 

Portola Valley's Emergency Preparedness Committee is asking physicians, nurses and other resident healthcare providers to meet Friday, Sept. 30, to discuss the town's current emergency plans and related issues.

The meeting starts at 5 p.m. in the Buckeye Room of the Community Hall at Town Center, 765 Portola Road.

Topics include managing risk, coordinating resources, discussing where help may be most needed, and the liability that volunteers incur.

In an emergency, such as earthquake or fire, the town may "be 'on its own' for an extended period of time," according to Dr. Diana Koin, a physician, resident and a member of the committee. "Understanding what resources are available from residents is critical to emergency preparedness."

Call (650) 851-2266 or email Dr. Koin at dianakoin6@gmail.com for more information.
