Emergency “Go Bag” class returns

The Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay will repeat its popular free workshop on what local individuals and families should pack in their emergency “Go Bags” Thursday, Oct. 22, from noon to 2 p.m. at the fire station in Bayside Gardens.


Larry Wiedenhoft and Tim Anderson will lead the class, which will cover:

• What are the most important things to have in a Go Bag?

• How long should someone plan to be away from home?

• Where is the best place to store a Go Bag?

• Should Go Bags be taken to assembly sites or shelter?

• What is the difference between “shelter-in-place” supplies and those needed in a Go Bag?

Wiedenhoft and Anderson invite people who already have Go Bags to come to the class and learn what’s new.

Attendees should feel free to bring a lunch.
