‘Pass It On’ awareness training

Join the Shoreline Police Block Watch Program as it teams up with the City of Shoreline Emergency Management for the “Pass It On” customized awareness training from 6-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26 at the Shoreline- Lake Forest Park Senior Center.

“Pass It On” is designed to prepare neighborhoods for an emergency. The training residents receive will allow them not only to protect themselves and their families, but also will provide information and materials for neighborhood “Watch” programs and community groups to teach them how to prepare for an emergency or disaster. It is presented so each person can “pass it on” to another group, extended family, faith group or civic club.

The training is free, but those interested are asked to call 206-546-3636 to register.

The senior center is located at 18560 First Ave. NE.
