REMINDER:  QUARTERLY MEETING/TRAINING
JEFFERSON COUNTY - PORT TOWNSEND REGIONAL EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS NETWORK (J-PREP)
Friday, October 31 - 10:00 am
Port Townsend Fire Station (Lawrence @ Harrison Streets)

Purpose of the J-PREP network: The ability to deal with a crisis is largely dependent on the structures and relationships that have been developed before the emergency.  J-PREP provides an informal forum (on a quarterly basis) for networking with local government officials, emergency response agencies, neighborhood groups, community members, disaster relief organizations, and others with a common interest in emergency preparedness, response, and recovery in Jefferson County and Port Townsend.

DAMAGE REPORTING:  Report damage to your primary residence only (Damage to outbuildings, driveways, etc., will not be eligible for FEMA assistance.)  Click here for info on how and when to report damage, what information is needed, and what you can expect during the damage assessment process.

KEEP A GOOD RECORD Documentation is an important part of damage reporting.  Take videos or still photos, maintain a diary of emergency repairs, keep receipts, etc.  Do what you have to do to make your home safe and habitable, but be sure to document every step.  Notify your insurance carrier right away.

DISASTER ASSISTANCE:  Here is some general post-earthquake guidance that can help you through the initial reporting process.
