Eugene neighborhood associations and the Bend nonprofit PathFinderEX invite you to Eugene Ready!, a disaster preparedness exercise on Sunday, May 22, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Alton Baker Park.

The free event, which is supported by a Eugene Community and Neighborhood Matching Grant, will be held at 100 Day Island Road.

Event attendees will participate in valuable training in emergency and disaster planning, team coordination, and neighborhood response coordination. Participating vendors include American Red Cross Cascades Chapter, Med-Tech Resources LLC, Western Shelter and EMT Associates.

“The hope is that by holding neighborhood events like this, communities can better know what to do, what resources they already have, and what goes into planning for an emergency or disaster,” said Chris Webb, Director of Community Outreach for PathFinderEX.

As a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, PathFinderEX accepts tax-deductible contributions which help community members train and prepare for disasters.

PathFinderEX provides disaster preparedness tools, online training, and in-person exercises to build a community of disaster response professionals, and to empower individuals to become fully-capable community responders.

For more information, contact your local neighborhood association or follow PathFinderEX on FacebookLinkedIn, and their blog.

The event flyer appears as follows:
