Are you prepared to take care of yourself, your family and help your neighbors in an emergency or disaster? Can you get through the first three days of an emergency without any assistance? The Bellevue Fire Department Office of Emergency Management is hosting a presentation focusing on Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness and what to do before, during, and after an emergency or disaster occurs.
