Planning for the Long Emergency

“Planning for the Long Emergency, talk by Director of Vermont Emergency Management in Montpelier” on Transition Vermont

Time: February 18, 2010 from 6pm to 8pm
Location: Kellogg Hubbard Library
Organized By: Transition Town Montpelier and Kellogg Hubbard Library

Event Description:
James Howard Kunstler refers to the 21st century as a time of “converging crises” against a background of declining energy availability. How is Vermont prepared for fuel shortages or long-term electrical outages? Whose role is it to prepare, and how? What can individuals and communities do to heighten their preparedness? Barbara Farr, director of Vermont Emergency Management, draws on her experience with floods, fires, epidemics, oil spills, and other disasters to answer these questions. This talk is another in the “Third Thursday Transition Presentations” at Kellogg Hubbard Library.

Barbara Farr will also give the keynote talk at the Emergency Planning Community Meeting, Saturday, Feb 27, 10 am to 3 pm, at the Unitarian Church in Montpelier.
