Public Safety Committee

The Public Safety Committee strives to help make Queen Anne a safe place to live and work. It focuses on three area: crime & security, fire & resuce, and emergency preparedness.

The life you’ve built is worth protecting. Prepare for disasters for you and your family. This year’s national public service announcements are being developed and will be released throughout the country this September, to help get preparedness information into the hands of those who live in underserved communities.

We will post new links throughout the month that will help you learn and prepare for a disaster.

Learn more about how to prepare for a disaster or emergency in your immediate neighborhood.  Reveiw this presentation on SNAP, and contact Sophia Lopez to discuss a SNAP presentation for you and your neighbors.
