The City of Bainbridge Island has partnered with Bainbridge Prepares, Bainbridge Public Library, Bainbridge Island Fire Department, Bainbridge Island Metro Park and Recreation District, Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island and Puget Sound Energy to host the fourth annual Three Days of Preparedness. During the Three Days of Preparedness, community members are invited to come together to help Bainbridge Island become the most prepared community in the region.
The three-day event begins on Wednesday, September 26 with Film Night at Bainbridge Cinemas, sponsored by Puget Sound Energy, featuring The Geological Formation of Bainbridge Island: Parts 1, 2 and 3. The event is open to the public and free of charge, but tickets are necessary and can be reserved on Eventbrite. Doors open for the first showing at 5:30 p.m. with the film starting at 6 p.m. Doors open for the second showing at 6:30 p.m. with the film beginning at 7 p.m. After each showing of the film, community members will have the opportunity to ask questions of Gregory Geehan, a geologist and narrator of the film.
The Three Days continues Saturday, September 29 with the Preparedness Expo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at City Hall. The event features the “Big Shaker,” a mobile earthquake simulator that shows what can happen inside your home during an earthquake. The Expo will also include information booths and workshops to help community members get prepared at home, on their commute and at work. The workshops will include a variety of topics: first aid skills, family reunification during a disaster, what to do when the power is out and what steps your neighborhood can take to prepare for an emergency. Participants will also receive free emergency preparedness kits courtesy of Puget Sound Energy (while supplies last).
On Sunday, September 30, the Three Days of Preparedness will wrap-up with the Emergency Hubs Demonstration from 2 to 4 p.m. at Island Church, located at 9624 Sportsman Club Rd. Drop by anytime during the two-hour period to learn more about our system of neighborhood gathering sites for emergencies.
The event hosts would like to thank the following people, businesses and organizations for supporting this year’s Three Days of Preparedness: Puget Sound Energy, Bainbridge Cinemas, Island Church, producer-director Cameron Snow and geologist Gregory Geehan.
