Community Emergency Food Preparedness
The Emergency Preparedness Work Group of the Alaska Food Policy Council has been working over the past year to develop "tools"designed to help communities across the state of Alaska to prepare for emergency and disaster events. These tools are designed to help guide community conversations to assess current conditions and address our individual community planning and preparedness needs. They are evolving and feedback is encouraged. Please contact Darren Snyder for assistance with their employment in your community.
