Earthquake Drill at BZC Sitting/Party

On October 18, BZC participated in the state-wide Earthquake Preparedness Drill known as “the Great California Shake Out.” At 10:18 a.m. BZC residents and members were encouraged to “Drop, Cover, and Hold-On,” simulating the response to a major earthquake. Residents then checked their personal earthquake kit. This was an opportunity to discuss and reflect on the ongoing issue of preparedness for earth­quakes and other major disasters.

More discussion, planning, and prepara­tions are planned for the coming year. If you are interested in participating, send a note to Bruce Coughran at
