The one year anniversary of the deadly 1/9 debris flow in Montecito was not only a chance to remember those who lost their lives, and were injured. It helped focus new attention on the issue of preparedness. In the wake of the Thomas Fire, and Montecito debris flow, a non-profit agency which normally focuses on feeding the hungry in Santa Barbara County is making available disaster preparedness food kits.
KCLU’s Lance Orozco reports each one of the ice chest sized emergency food boxes can feed a person for a week.
