The seminar will be presented by Christopher Chauncey, president of “Preparedness Counts” a national preparedness education group, based in Carlsbad.
Kennie Wisham, is the technical ministry pastor and worship leader at Encinitas Beach Chapel. Wisham said the church is hosting the seminar because it is important to be prepared. “Do you remember a few years back when there was a total blackout for 24 hours, or do you remember the San Diego county fires of 2007 – if you do, then you know that emergency preparedness is something you can never have enough of.”
The seminar is a Power-Point and video presentation, that gives specifics about why and how to prepare. An overview of the earthquake faults that are in and around San Diego County will give details about the likelihood of an earthquake happening here. The San Andreas fault to the east of us, is the longest fault line in the country, and poses the biggest threat to us. The San Andreas will be explained in more details during the seminar.
What to prepare and to have in storage is another topic that will be addressed during the meeting. It is a list of things that all families, churches, and businesses should have. Things like; alternative sources of power, long-term food storage, and clean water storage, along with emergency medicine supplies.
Prep Counts president, Chris Chauncey says, “If you haven’t prepared before a disaster hits, it’s too late – so remember, preparedness counts.”
The Saturday seminar begins at 10:00 a.m. and will be held at 510 S. El Camino Real, Encinitas.
