Reflections on the Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow
Santa Barbara and Ventura County experienced some of the most devastating fire and debris flows in our history last year. As we enter a new year, Antioch University will host a panel of first, second and third responders to discuss what our community can do to better prepare for the next natural disaster.
Two keynote speakers – Rob Lewin, emergency operations director for Santa Barbara County's Office of Emergency Management, and Emily Barany, founder of Visionality Partners and co-founder of Thomas Fire Help – will reflect on their experiences during these emergencies. Other panelists include Rose Levy, Direct Relief; Christina Kelley, Mission Harbor Behavioral Health; Fernando Moreno, Heavenly Worth Home Health; Anne Wells, City of Goleta; and Stephanie Kaster, Casa Dorinda.
Join us for a meaningful evening that involves both evaluating the recent disasters and a looking toward the future to ask the question, how may we come together as a team to be more prepared?
