MANITOU SPRINGS- The Manitou Springs Recovery Fund is hosting a community wide forum on flood and fire preparedness for residents.
Updates on progress made in preparation for this year's potential emergencies will be made by Mayor Marc Snyder, Police Chief Joe Ribeiro and City Administrator Jack Benson. Board members from the Manitou Springs Emergency Recovery Fund will also be sharing information on ways to volunteer and financially help victims of future flood and fire disasters.
Following last year's flooding through Manitou Springs, citizens have been mobilizing to provide safe and secure ways for neighbors to help neighbors in times of need. The Manitou Springs Emergency Recovery Fund in cooperation with the Pikes Peak Community Foundation has been receiving donations that will provide immediate assistance to future business and residential victims of community wide disasters.
MERF is sponsoring this upcoming community in concert with community leaders to keep the public informed and prepared for such future events.
The meeting will be held on Saturday, April 5 from 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM at 515 Manitou Avenue in Manitou Springs.
