Disaster Workshops

Throughout the year, workshops are held in Novato and Ft. Myers communities to prepare for disaster. Workshops are announced on this site and through community newspapers.

Participants walk away with:

  • a vision of your community's role in your neighborhood after a disaster
  • tools, templates, resources and next steps for planning for your facility, staff, family and neighbors
  • a start on your Disaster Plan and available support
