Jefferson County Public Health Hosts Extreme Heat and
Wildfire Smoke Safety Community Training

Jefferson County Public Health is pleased to announce an upcoming community training event focused on extreme heat and wildfire smoke safety. The training will take place on April 10th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Finnriver Cider Garden, located at 124 Center Road in Chimacum. Admission is free, and all members of the community are encouraged to attend.

With the increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather events, it is essential for individuals and families to be prepared and informed. This training will provide valuable information on how to stay safe during heatwaves and wildfire smoke events, particularly targeting outdoor workers, families and individuals without access to air conditioning or air filtering HVAC systems.

The event will feature expert speakers, including Dan Nelson from the Olympic Region Clean Air Agency, and Orly Stamfer, an Air Quality Specialist from the Washington State Department of Health, among others. Attendees can expect to learn practical tips and strategies for protecting themselves and their loved ones during challenging environmental conditions.

The training is co-sponsored by Jefferson County’s Department of Emergency Management, emphasizing the collaborative effort to promote community resilience and safety. Don't miss this valuable opportunity to learn how to stay safe during extreme weather events. Mark your calendars for April 10th and join us at the Finnriver Cider Garden for an informative and engaging training session.

The Finnriver taproom will be open for drinks but there is no food service on Wednesday evenings. Attendees are welcome to bring their own picnic or snacks. No outside beverages or alcohol is permitted.
