The City of Vader will be hosting a Public Meeting for all residents of Vader and the surrounding areas regarding vital neighborhood emergency preparedness. Daucie Willson, a local area resident, has prepared a presentation to introduce a program called Map Your Neighborhood, on January 19th, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Vader City Hall building.

Map Your Neighborhood is based on the concept that most neighborhoods will be on their own for the first hours following a disaster and maybe for as long as three days or more. This is an attempt to help each neighborhood to gather important information and skills to respond to your own and other's needs during those first critical hours.

Who is the meeting for?

Anyone who has living at or located on their property or a nearby neighbors' property any of the following:

  • Those who are elderly.
  • Those with a disability.
  • Those which might have children who are home alone.
  • Those who have propane or other natural gas tanks and lines. 

Come join us for light refreshments and lots of information about what to do during and how to prepare for a large scale emergency or disaster. Please contact City Hall with any questions, 360-295-3222.
