11:00am KEYNOTE ADDRESS The Importance of Community Resiliency (Alice Busch)  What has taken our society away from the civic engagement that we used to have, what can we do about it? How can you move beyond simply surviving a disaster and actually lead others?  What will it take to meet the challenges and long work of recovery?   Join us in this kick-off for our day of preparedness classes. (Room #1)

11:30am Developing a Family Emergency Plan (Major Aaron DeCelle) Family emergency preparedness begins with developing a Family Emergency Plan (FEP).  This presentation will use the tools and processes found on FEMA’s website to help you understand how to develop a personalized FEP. (Room #1)

11:30am Emergency Drinking Water (Deanna DeLong)
Learn more about having safe drinking water in an emergency when public water supplies are unavailable. Learn how to store water and obtain safe drinking water when you don't have it available at your tap!  It may change your life--and your health! (Room #2).

11:30am Preparing for Health Disasters (Kathy Thompson)  In books and movies, like the movie Contagion, we see that a disease can be powerful enough to cause the fabric of modern society to break.  This discussion explores what the movie portrayed and compares the it to “real life.” (Room #3)

12:00 Recognizing and Harvesting Yummy Edible "Plants" (Kelly Hoffman)   Learn how to recognize some common Oregon wild edibles that are tasty and packed with nutrition. Find out how to supplement your salads. If something ever went wrong, wouldn't it be a shame to feel hungry because you don't recognize the good food growing near your door? (Room #3)

12:30pm Water & Sewer – What Can You Expect During and After an Emergency (Jeramy Inskeep & Kari Duncan) The City of Lake Oswego will help us understand the answers to the following questions:  Is it OK to put liquid and solid waste in the sewer? After an earthquake, do we need to wait for an all clear before we flush or drink? How well will our water system withstand an earthquake? (Room #1)

12:30pm Power Outage Preparation (Brianne Hyder)
As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Columbus Day Storm, we know that natural disasters may strike at any time.  A severe storm or other natural event is likely to result in some disruption of power to customers. Come hear what to do if the lights go out, and learn the 7 steps PGE follows to restore power to customers. (Room #2)

12:30pm The Do’s and Don’ts of Funeral Planning (Ron & Deborah Threadgill) Understand your options for funeral homes, cemeteries, burial versus cremation, anatomical donation, Veteran’s benefits, out of state transportation, etc. (Room #3)

1:00pm Map Your Neighborhood (Major A. DeCelle)
“Map Your Neighborhood” helps neighborhoods prepare for disasters.”  During a disaster first responders are usually too busy to respond to local neighborhoods because of higher priorities.  Create a safety network within your neighborhood to consolidate resources, and skills to help each other as a team when a disaster occurs (Room #1)

1:00pm Safety, Security & Peace of Mind with Emergency Oils (Wade & Kristi Olsen)  This fun class empowers you to take control in a Crisis or Emergency situation. 1 drop of Essential Oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in your body! Come find out how to use the oils so you can get rid of or inhibit: Bacteria, Depression, Fungus, and more. (Room #2)

1:00pm Will Your Home Hold Up? (Steve Gemmell)
Steve’s presentation will cover the fundamentals of seismic construction practices and the requirements for retrofitting homes that do not have the necessary connections for enduring earthquakes. (Room #3)

1:30 pm Coping with Children in an Emergency (Tyra Baird)  Emotional and psychological reactions to a disaster will be reviewed by age, and what parents and other adults can do to foster healthy coping skills. Includes tips for how to talk about the disaster and address concerns. Includes family coping strategies. (Room #3)
