Community Disaster Preparedness and Mutual Aid Event
Join EEC December 1st, 6-7:30pm, for a virtual evening of talking community disaster preparedness specific to Edgewater and Chicago with Zoë Higgins, Mutual Aid Disaster Preparedness Advocate. Monica Dix with EEC will talk over Chicago-climate context, and Zoë will share her background and experiences with preparedness in Louisiana, myth vs reality of disaster events, and why everyone should have some level of preparedness. Zoë will share practical tips for 1. having a 72-hour kit, 2. extreme cold/snow and how to help unhoused neighbors, 3. urban preparedness and benefits of urban environments in a disaster context. As we transition to winter, come to learn how we can build community through keeping each other safe.
