Fire Buddy Training
August 12, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join Berkeley Mutual Aid (BMA) for “Wildfire Buddy” training and learn how to support someone living in a fire danger zone!
All are welcome! You do NOT need to be a BMA volunteer to attend and to become a wildfire ally ! We hope to help build these skills for everyone, helping ourselves and each other face this threat together as a community.
Many people in Berkeley and Oakland’s fire zones are isolated or have experienced the threat of power outages, hazardous smoke, and wildfires as something they have been left to deal with alone, unsupported. We want to change that by creating a powerful sense of community support and solidarity.
Topics will include planning for evacuations, power outages, smoke; getting emergency alerts; how to connect with those who need support. This will be an opportunity to share your own suggestions and ask questions as well!
