Port Ludlow and Jefferson County have experienced quite a few power outages this winter. For most, these presented a mere inconvenience that was soon forgotten when the power returned. It begs the question, how might these pesky short-term outages be preparing us for something more significant? WHAT IF our next outage isn’t due to a windstorm or other short-term cause, but is the result of a catastrophic disaster that KNOCKS OUT POWER … INDEFINITELY… FOR MONTHS?
Many of our communities are all electric or a combination of propane gas and electric. What do we do if power is interrupted for months? What can individuals or neighborhoods do to prepare for communication, heating and cooking without normal utility power?
All these questions and more will be answered at “When the Lights Go Out” seminar, presented by Mark Bauserman, and associates. Mark is a volunteer with the Jefferson County Department of Emergency Management and a member of the Local 2020 Jefferson County Neighborhood Prep (NPREP) Committee.
The seminar, hosted by the PLVC Emergency Management (PLVC-EM) and sponsored by the Ludlow Maintenance Commission (LMC), will be offered free of charge. Seating is limited. Registration is not required, but those who do register will be guaranteed a seat. Thank you for registering!
