Join Claudia Ziroli to learn how you can be ‘Emergency Ready’.

Emergency Preparedness for your family means the difference between a successful outcome and a disaster! Hurricane season is here, and regular earthquakes and the ongoing eruption should have us all thinking about our family readiness. Natural disasters could affect us directly- or indirectly, and WILL have a critical impact on your family!

Community Emergency Response Team member (CERT) and Preparedness Trainer will help to guide you through simple steps to ensure that YOUR family will be ready for the next event.

Meet authors Neena Roumell, Ph.D. and Lynne Farr. Dr. Roumell is a licensed psychologist who worked for greater than thirty years with infants and their parents.  Her book “Attachment Fathering” reflects the vital role fathers play in the lives of their children. It can help motivate fathers to become involved, nurturing caregivers from the moment their children enter this world. Lynne Farr has written five books since living on Hawaii Island, most of the books are about two idiots moving off grid to a really rainy rain forest, having no idea what they were getting into.  She will bring them all and read from whichever book interests you most.
