“Planning for the Long Emergency, talk by Director of Vermont Emergency Management in Montpelier” on Transition VermontTime: February 18, 2010 from 6pm to 8pm Location: Kellogg Hubbard Library Organized By: Transition Town Montpelier and Kellogg Hubbard Library
James Howard Kunstler refers to the 21st century as a time of “converging crises” against a background of declining energy availability. How is Vermont prepared for fuel shortages or long-term electrical outages? Whose role is it to prepare, and how? What can individuals and communities do to heighten their preparedness? Barbara Farr, director of Vermont Emergency Management, draws on her experience with floods, fires, epidemics, oil spills, and other disasters to answer these questions. This talk is another in the “Third Thursday Transition Presentations” at Kellogg Hubbard Library.
