Mayor Carlo DeMaria and the Council on Aging recently hosted the American Red Cross for an emergency preparedness presentation at the Connolly Center. Many topics were covered, such as what to pack in an emergency kit in case of a disaster like a hurricane. Some of the important items mentioned were water, nonperishable foods, medications, a flash light, a first aid kit and a blanket. Another topic was what to do and how to handle a fire safely.
“Thank you to the American Red Cross and Council on Aging for hosting this presentation for Everett residents, especially our seniors,” said Mayor DeMaria. “It’s an important reminder to always be prepared for an emergency at all times.”
