A representative from the Seattle Office of Emergency Management will be at the November meeting of the Madison Valley Community Council.

Residents will learn how they can individually prepare for a disaster event.

Meanwhile, the MVCC is discussing with surrounding community organizations how to work together during a major disaster.

MVCC secretary Diane Zahn said the organization is looking for someone who can lead those efforts, adding they do not have to serve on the board to do so. She can be reached at zahndsea@msn.com.

The meeting starts 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, at the MLK FAME Community Center, 3201 E. Republican St.
