From staff reports:

In response to a citizen survey issued this past summer, the City of Federal Way will offer more emergency preparedness courses in 2010.

More than 70 percent of the 157 respondents showed an interest in taking classes that will help them better prepare for an emergency. Classes on constructing an emergency supply kit, first aid, earthquake preparedness and more will be offered.

Neighborhood Emergency Team training will take place Jan. 25. Community Emergency Response Team training will occur Feb. 4. Prepare 101, where attendees will learn how to build an emergency kit, is scheduled for Feb. 20. Basic first aid and CPR is offered monthly through South King Fire and Rescue.
