September is National Preparedness Month. The City of Redmond has started a public emergency preparedness campaign called “Redmond Ready” that encourages citizens to get trained in First Aid, CPR, and personal preparedness.
Redmond Ready Day will be the public kickoff for Redmond Ready. It will take place Saturday, September 15, 2012 at Overlake Christian Church (9900 Willows Road NE) in Redmond, from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Advanced registration for the full day is required.
This event will feature a no-cost two-hour class in personal preparedness as well as a certification class in First Aid and CPR. The cost for the first aid and CPR training is $14.00, a discount off the regular price. Booths and vendors covering various aspects of preparedness and volunteer opportunities will also be available.
Register early, first come, first served. Space is limited. To register for this event please visit the Redmond Ready website at www.redmondready.org
. Additional Redmond Ready two-hour emergency preparedness classes will be offered at no cost throughout the rest of the year. Check back at redmondready.org for more details or call 425-556-2251.
