Emergency preparedness workshop at Ballard Library this Thursday

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on June 25th, 2014


By Joe Veyera

A half-hour workshop at the Ballard Branch Library (5614 22nd Ave NW) on Thursday evening hopes to teach local residents about one of the most important essentials of emergency preparedness: How to put out a fire.

The Fire Extinguisher 101 workshop will teach those in attendance how to choose the right extinguisher, and the do’s and don’ts when faced with a fire, while also providing hands-on practice with a demo extinguisher. The event is free and suitable for all ages. No pre-registration is required.

The workshop is part of the Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare (SNAP) program from the City of Seattle’s Office of Emergency Management. These 30-minute SNAP shot skills-based workshops, conducted in partnership with Seattle Public Library branches, focus on one aspect of emergency preparedness.

The SNAP program is designed to help neighborhoods create plans specific to their needs in case of an emergency, and breaks the process of organizing into three parts: getting together, getting organized, and getting confident.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote
    and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

    Hi there would you mind letting me know which
    webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this
    blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was
    a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I know that there are probably millions of bloggers out there. I also know that there a small percentage of them make money from blogging. Does anyone out there do this, (make money from blogging) and how do they do it?.

    I just bought a new computer and would like the same settings I have on my other computer. How do I go about doing this? The one thing I want to change in firefox on my new computer is when I type a website in the address bar I would like it to show my history instead of my bookmarks. I changed it before but I can’t remember what I did..

    I am asking for my mother. She doesn’t necessarily want to make money off them, her purpose is to use her blog (once popular) and use it as references to possibly help her get a newspaper article. She has a title for one called “Answers to Life’s Problems”. Where can she post blogs and they become popular? She posted it already on WordPress but there are 3 million people posting blogs hers gets lost in the mix. Any suggestions?.
