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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
