Adults 55 and older are invited to a special workshop being hosted by the city of Diamond Bar next week focused on disaster and emergency preparedness.
The event— which is being offered free-of-charge— will take place Thursday, February 28, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Diamond Bar Center, 1600 Grand Ave., according to the city.
"Co-sponsored by Foothill Communities RSVP, this seminar aims to teach older adults how to increase their self-sufficiency and what steps they can take ahead of time to prevent or minimize injuries during a disaster," an announcement about the event states.
Those in attendance will also learn what sorts of things should be included in your at-home emergency kit— and at least one person will receive a free kit at th event, organizers said.
Though the event is free, reservations are required and can be made by calling 909-839-7070.
