4 Steps to Emergency Preparedness
August 26, 7:00 - 8:30 pm
With COVID-19, it is more important than ever to be prepared for the next major emergency. All families need a plan, and adults 60+ are among the most vulnerable when disaster strikes.
Greater Niles Village has made special arrangements for an evening workshop with Karen Grimsich from the City of Fremont. This workshop will help you complete the 4 emergency preparedness steps workbook. Everyone who registers will also receive an online version of the workbook and the Zoom meeting ID.
