Registration for the 2015 Mass Care Regional Forum is now open.

2015 Mass Care Regional Forum Survey

Save the date and fill out this survey (see link above) to register for the free King County Mass Care Regional Forum on Thursday, May 14, from 9 am to 12 pm, with an optional Mass Care 101 session at 8 am.

Last year you told us you wanted more operational information and we listened! This year’s event focuses on the practical aspects of sheltering pets and working with vulnerable populations and includes panel discussions with a veterinarian, pet shelter experts the Disability Advisory Group and others as well as a session on operating a pet shelter.

This event is for organizations involved in Mass Care (shelter, feeding, distribution of emergency supplies, etc.) for disasters in King County. It is designed to bring together government, non-profit, faith, and other partners who work together to help people in disasters. This is a time to network, learn of planning efforts, emerging issues, resources, and channels for receiving and offering assistance during a disaster.

The forum will be held at the Seattle Chapter of the American Red Cross located at 1900 25th Ave S. Seattle. It is being hosted by the King County Mass Care Workgroup, a sub-committee of the King County Emergency Management Advisory Committee. A full agenda will be sent out prior to the event.

Please note that we will be offering a Mass Care 101 session from 8:00 am to 8:50 am, prior to the forum. This session is designed for those who are new to the Mass Care arena and need a basic overview of who is responsible for which activities.

Please note, my email address has changed to breth@issaquahwa.gov.  Please update your records.
