Hi, I'm a single retired lady who has always been trying to take care of myself and family. I'm online a lot looking for information about being prepared and have just found your group. I've taken CERT classes and am interested in learning more.
Yes, that is my strongest desire at this time.
I was here for the Northridge earthquake with shutdown roads and problems everywhere. Though that really didn't effect me personally as much, I am well aware that next time it could be here in the AV and don't want to be one of those people standing in line for food and water fearing for my life. I have children who think I'm nuts and grandchildren who will need someone to take care of them because of their short-sited parents. I realize I don't have enough skills or information and that there's no way I can survive alone. The more I learn from finding things online, the more I realize I don't know. I believe working in community is better than being alone and I want to learn what it is I don't know. So disappointed I found this after the potluck was over. I would have loved meeting with people. With family on the East Coast living through hurricanes with all those problems not being prepared, I've been trying to get them to understand how important this is also.
Lots of great information offered by knowledgeable people who walk the walk.
No worries about missing the potluck, we meet every Monday at 7pm. This Monday I will be there at 630 pm, anyone is welcome to come at 630 and bring some goodies to share so we can meet and greet before the class part starts. Hope to meet you on Monday, if I can be of any help please email me [masked] -Amanda
