Sequim Bay Yacht Club Speaker Event
Join the Sequim Bay Yacht Club on Wednesday, October 13, 6:15-7:30 p.m., for an entertaining Community Emergency Response presentation by Blaine Zechenelly and Keith Koehler of Clallam County Fire District #3 (CCFD3). Come and learn the latest about how the Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake and Tsunami may impact you and what you can do to prepare for the event. The presentation is open to the general public, and will be held in the Hendrick’s Public Meeting Room at the John Wayne Marina in Sequim. Please note, in accordance with state and county mandates, masks will be required in the Hendrick’s Room. Blaine and Keith are the CCFD3 Sequim Operational Area Planners and serve on multiple state preparedness committees. Blaine is also the co-author of the annual newspaper insert “Peninsula Emergency Preparedness Guide”. They have been offering Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training for five years and have trained over 680 people. Blaine and Keith are passionate about what they do and offer a refreshing perspective on preparedness. Blaine and Keith will tell you the facts and the anticipated damage for our area of the northwest. They will also let you know how you can prepare in advance to lessen the impact of this event on your life. The event is coming but is not on anyone’s calendar. Earthquakes never are. Even with the most sophisticated warning system available at present, the best expected warning is only seconds ahead of the shaking. Many plans are in the works for recovering from the event, and you will learn about this ongoing work.
