“There are a variety of emergencies which families may experience, such as power outages, severe weather episodes, and accidents. It’s important that people have a plan to deal with these emergencies so that families know what to do if they happen,” shares Louise Blasius, LMSW, LPC, Director of Human Services at McKenzie Health System. “Colette will educate the audience about types of emergencies and what kind of plans families should have in place.”

“As always, the topic will be presented in a relaxed, personal manner and questions will be welcomed,” reports Blasius. “In addition, attendees are able to enjoy a tasty, nutritious meal; it’s a great way to spend a lunchtime. We encourage people to reserve their space as soon as possible!”
