Joslyn Center Offers Emergency Preparedness Seminar March 24th 2023

The Joslyn Center in Palm Desert is presenting a free Emergency Preparedness Seminar on Friday, March 24th from 1:00 P-M to 3:00P-M.

The seminar, sponsored by Southern California Edison will feature important information from the American Red Cross, Southern California Gas, and local emergency responders.

Individuals wishing to receive the free Emergency Kit must register at The Joslyn Center reception desk in person or by calling 760-340-3220.

The Emergency Kit has supplies for two individuals, including food, water and a first aid kit for three days.

There will be a limited number of emergency kits available, so first registered, first served.

This program is made possible by the generous financial support of Southern California Edison and by our participating presenters.  With the devastation of recent earthquakes around the world, the importance of this seminar and being prepared in the event of an emergency or natural disaster cannot be more evident.

Please remember that the availability of the Emergency Kits is “first come – first served” and we strongly encourage pre-registration for this event.

The Joslyn Center especially encourages Latino and other underserved communities to take advantage of this program.  “As senior centers have long been viewed as a trusted community resource, we are excited to present this opportunity to our local Latino and senior neighbors,” said Jack Newby, executive director of The Joslyn Center.

For questions, please contact The Joslyn Center for further information at 760-340-3220.
