Members of the Fire and Police Departments will be visiting all private and public schools in the City on Thursday, October 16, 2014, to participate in California’s “Great ShakeOut!” The purpose of the visit is to educate all students on what to do if and when and earthquake occurs. Students will be taught to “Drop, Cover and Hold On” during the actual shaking and then they will evacuate the building to a safe location on school property. In addition City personnel will work with the individual schools and go over disaster plans and supplies to ensure that they are all appropriate and current. While the statewide event is scheduled for 10:16 a.m., City staff will be working with each school to determine the best time.
