Disaster Preparedness Workshops Set at Pasadena Senior Center

Published in the Pasadena Independent

The American Red Cross will present free Prepare SoCal workshops Friday, Oct. 31, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Pasadena Senior Center, 85 E. Holly St.

Participants will learn what to store in an emergency kit, how to make a plan for what to do before, during and after a disaster and how to stay informed.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, Southern California is one of the most at-risk areas for earthquakes and the “Big One” – an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 or higher – is long overdue.

For seniors, whether they live independently or with a caregiver, it is more important than ever to be prepared for earthquakes and other disasters that can strike suddenly at any time.

Parking will be validated for participants who park in the structure at the southeast corner of Holly Street and Arroyo Parkway.

To register for one of the Prepare SoCal workshops or for more information, call (626) 795-4331.

Founded in 1959, the Pasadena Senior Center is an independent, nonprofit organization that offers recreational, educational, wellness and social services to people ages 50 and over in a friendly environment. Services are also provided for frail, low-income and homebound seniors.
