Participate in this discussion-based group and share your ideas and learn from others about what makes our community strong, and what areas we can target for improvement. Light food provided. Pre-registration required.

WHO: The City of Renton Emergency Management Staff invite the public, particularly members of the many diverse communities throughout Renton, to join in the discussion about how to create disaster resilient communities.

WHEN: Thursday, April 26, 2012, 6:30 to 9 p.m. Pre-registration required by April 18, 2012.

WHERE: Renton City Hall, 7th Floor Council Chambers, 1055 South Grady Way, Renton.
