From Garry Sanfacon:


I want to let you know about an exciting and informative workshop in June that is open to all county residents.Better Together explores the meaning of resilience and the role of emergency management, and helps individuals develop personal skills and connections to navigate emergency situations.

The program consists of three workshops and features a mosaic of interactive exercises, group discussions, guest speakers, and activities aimed at developing a mindset of resilience in the context of a variety of hazards. Participants who complete the workshop series will be better equipped to build resilience in their communities and increase capacity to help protect themselves, their family, and their neighbors during any emergency.

Applications are due by May 31st. Space is limited to the first 25 qualified applicants (people who can attend all three sessions and provide thoughtful responses). See below for details about how to register.
