This summer the Mayor’s Office and the Emergency Management Department are hosting a series on Disaster Awareness for the small business community. I will be leading the planning and outreach.
The next event is August 5, 2014 South Valley/Harbor Regions.
Our first two events have been great!
We are hoping you can help spread the word through your network as we wish to reach out to as many people as possible.It is important to engage all communities in discussion about disaster awareness. Also, the EOC is something out of a movie. It will be an informative and fun time.
It is also an opportunity for you to share information about your organization with attendees and let your constituents know that you are taking steps to be more prepared.
If you would like a moment to speak at the event or have materials to pass out please let me know.
Attached is an event flyer.
Below is a description of the event for easier forwarding and posting. Please utilize your email contacts, Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc), and event calendars.

We thank you for your support and partnership.
