Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at The Umpqua River Inn and Suites, 45209 State Highway 38, Reedsport, OR 97467.

"Katrina - A first hand account" is the main topic presented by Eddie Cox.

He was the training director for the National Center for Biodefense Solutions, teaching first responders in  decon, triage, target hardening and response for mass casualty incidents.  SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.

This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas.  It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help.  Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or
