"Hello Kim. I just wanted to send my thanks to you for the excellent 7 Steps to Emergency Preparedness for Families. It is one I now everyone here could have used before our big wildfire in 2016! While its too late for that one, we are still dealing with the aftermath which your book covers as well. I think you have done a fantastic job, even including getting official media vs social media messaging and promoting the psychosocial effects, or in my slang, Mental Health Matters! " Mayor Melissa Blake
