(KLIX) – Idaho youth have only another week to sign up for a preparedness camp to be hosted in Washington State.
The deadline to register for the Federal Emergency Management Agency Youth Preparedness Camp is March 15. The camp is planned Aug. 18-23 in Stanwood, Wash.

“Young people want to lead and plan, and this camp is a way to empower them to do that,” FEMA Region 10 Administrator Michael O’Hare said in a statement. “Working as a team, they will be building partnerships, learning about how to help respond in a disaster and developing the confidence to know that, as individuals, they can make a difference.”
