When an earthquake strikes and the I-90 bridges are impassable do you have a plan for your family — or a preparedness kit at home to survive 7 days?
has partnered with to show you how you can prepare yourselves and your family to shelter in place for 7 days. Starting Friday, July 6 through Sunday, July 15th, the City of Mercer Island Emergency Preparedness Volunteers and Albertsons Grocery Store will be demonstrating what preparing for 7 days looks like. Volunteers and grocery staff will build a display of emergency supplies and sundries needed until basic services can be restored by authorities.
City Emergency Manager Jennifer Franklin credited local volunteers like Sue Robboy and Albertsons for working together to help the city deliver its message of emergency preparedness.
"I encourage everyone if you have time to stop by and see the display," she said. "This is just another example of our Mercer Island Businesses stepping forward to help our residents and our City work together to prepare, respond and recover from disasters."
