Disaster Preparedness Presentation

October 5, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Dear Roosevelt Parents,

I’d like to invite you all to attend my 8th Annual “FREE” seminar on preparing for the next earthquake or natural disaster as part of California’s earthquake preparedness month.  PLEASE, plan to attend on THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5th, 2017 at 9A.M., after drop off, IN THE CAFETERIA.

Apart from learning how to protect yourself and your family, you’ll learn about what our children will be experiencing at school during the Region-wide Southern California Shakeout drill slated for October 19, 2017 at 10:19am. Roosevelt will be participating in this major drill. This seminar will, among other things, provide you with the information you need to discuss disaster preparedness in a non-threatening way with your children prior to and after their drill.

Why attend now?? Because the 800-mile fault system known as the San Andreas Fault is long overdue for a massive quake, not having erupted since 1690. One scientist refers to it as the section that’s “10 months pregnant.” It’s also been 111 years since the northern section of the San Andreas caused the cataclysmic 1906 earthquake in San Francisco, the last “great” earthquake in California. With the recent swarm of earthquakes in the Salton Sea area, and a gigantic 8.1 magnitude Earthquake on September 9th 2017 in Southern Mexico isn’t it TIME TO GET READY…  If you were here in Santa Monica for the 6.4 magnitude Northridge quake, you know how much even a smaller magnitude quake can affect us locally. And if you’ve never heard of the La Puente Hills Fault, a fault that could cause 10 times the deaths and casualties of a San Andreas Fault rupture… well then it’s time to come and educate yourself!!

Come  to my seminar and get your family fully prepared to survive and recover faster! If you have friends with children in other SMMUSD schools who would like to attend, please feel free to have them tag along with you!

Again, that’s THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5th, 2017 at 9A.M., after drop off, in the Cafeteria, It will be fun and most importantly… It’s FREE!!
