Success!

We are so pleased! Thank you everyone, who participated in the mini-drill!

Here’s a very small and quick sampling of the “green things” in the windows in our neighborhood.

A report from Mishaa is on its way.

Disaster Mini-Drill + Ice Cream on 8/7

 

Please join the Halcyon Neighborhood Community Emergency Response Team in an emergency preparedness drill!

At 6:20 PM and at 7:00 PM on August 7, the evening of National Night Out, a CERT volunteer will drive through the neighborhood honking a car horn to signal the start of the drill.

When you hear the horn, hang a green sign in a front window (you can use this flyer) so CERT knows you are OK and walk to Halcyon Commons. Check in with the CERT table at the Commons and then enjoy meeting neighbors and eating ice cream.

And for now, consider doing one small thing to improve your readiness to survive a disaster. For example, make sure you have good shoes and a working flashlight beside your bed.

 

Steps to take in an actual disaster ——————–

  • Take care of yourself and your family (including pets). Administer first aid if needed.
  • Check your gas. Turn off ONLY if there is a fire or if you hear, see (spinning dial) or smell a leak.
  • Tune radio to emergency frequencies (1610 kHz) to get information and instructions.
  • Don protective equipment (sturdy shoes, helmets if available, comfortable clothing, and clothing to protect against weather as necessary).
  • Hang this sign (or any green paper or cloth) in a highly visible from the street location. If Search & Rescue teams do not see this or other GREEN sign, they will come check on your safety.
  • Take water, essential medications, and your Go Kit and proceed to Halcyon Commons Park (Halcyon Court at Prince Street).
