“The Great Southern California Shake Out Drill” Nov 13 10 a.m.

Special Announcement from Cathy Schlicht, councilmember elect, city of Mission Viejo

As my focus is on “emergency preparedness” I wish to notify residents of tomorrow’s Great Southern California (earthquake) Shake Out drill being conducted at 10 a.m.

To get more information on how to prepare for an emergency simply go to www.shakeout.org where you will have access to information that we should all read and keep posted for our family, neighbors and co-worker safety.  Cathy Schlicht

At 10 a.m. on November 13, join millions of people throughout Southern California in the ShakeOut Drill, the largest earthquake preparedness activity in U.S. history!
To register simply go to:

i.e. Protect yourself during earthquake shaking- drop, cover, and hold on.

” What should you do during and after earthquakes?

During earthquakes, drop to the floor, take cover under a sturdy desk or table, and hold on to it firmly. Be prepared to move with it until the shaking stops.

The area near the exterior walls of a building is the most dangerous place to be. Windows, facades and architectural details are often the first parts of the building to collapse. To stay away from this danger zone, stay inside if you are inside and outside if you are outside.”
