Tuesday is the deadline to for applications for a seat on the city's new Emergency Disaster Preparedness Committee.
The committee will advise the City Council on how the city can be ready to cope in a crisis.
Applicants will be interviewed at the June 21 council meeting, after which appointments will be made. Four members will be appointed for two-year terms and three members to one-year terms to establish future staggered appointments. Unlike other city committees, Emerald Bay residents are eligible.
"I believe it is essential for us to be ahead of the curve on disaster preparedness so we are ready for the next emergency or crisis," said committee co-Chairwoman Councilwoman Elizabeth Pearson.
