Are you ready for “the big one” promised us in the Pacific Northwest? Or any other disaster for that matter? The Seattle Public Libraries are offering free SNAP classes (Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare).

The classes are offered at various libraries throughout the Sound to help residents and neighborhoods become better prepared for disasters.

This interactive and informative program teaches simple steps that don’t take a lot of time or money. You’ll learn that preparedness can be fun and empowering!
