CMC Hosts Guest Speaker Kara Dunkel to Discuss Emergency Preparedness

On Saturday, November 18th, Kara Dunkel from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints gave a presentation on emergency preparedness at Carbondale Muslim Center. Over 30 members of the community attended, and learned about disaster prevention, preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery.

Kara shared educational materials and provided several suggestions for how congregations and households can try to stay safe and support one another during various crises.

“The presentation was very informative. It got me thinking about how prepared my family and I are, and how prepared our community center is, to handle these difficult and unexpected situations,” said Amina Sharif, a CMC member who attended the event. “We have a lot of work to do.”
