San Luis Obispo County officials on Wednesday night aim to quell residents’ safety concerns and educate them about emergency preparedness.
The League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo County will present “Safe in SLO: Strategies for a Changing World,” a public safety forum featuring speakers including county Sheriff Ian Parkinson, San Luis Obispo police Chief Deanna Cantrell and county Superintendent of Schools James Brescia.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at the County Government Center at 1055 Monterey St.
League President Marguerite Bader said the forum isn’t targeted at any specific topic but is meant to dispel fears and teach attendees about what county leaders are doing to keep them safe.
“We hope to gain perspective on these issues,” Bader said. “What is possible isn’t necessarily probable.”
Attendees will first listen to presentations from the speakers and will then get the chance to submit questions.
