Shake Out October 19!



Laguna Woods Village on October 19 will join millions of Americans in the Great California Shake Out drill, an annual opportunity to practice safety during an earthquake. Residents are encouraged to “drop, cover and hold on” for one minute at 10:19 a.m. and to review the Shakeout website at www.shakeout.org for other earthquake safety tips. 

 Good Neighbor Building and Block Captains will don their emergency vests, check on neighbors and produce a simulated earthquake damage and injury report. This report will be forwarded to Village Management Services, which will conduct a tabletop exercise using its newly updated Emergency Operations Plan. 

 If you want more information about the Shake Out or are interested in joining the Disaster Preparedness Force, email chief@vmsinc.org or call 949-268-2356.



Are you ready?

The Disaster Preparedness Task Force offers free training for residents to help their family and neighbors in the event of an emergency or disaster. Pre-registration is not required for the sessions; however, if a certification of training is desired for First Aid and CPR/AED, an extended certification session takes place at the end of the two-hour informational presentation, and you must register at least three days in advance by emailing your name to disasterprep@vmsinc.org.

The next CPR/AED training is at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, November 14 in Clubhouse 7.
 
Be a Good Neighbor: Have you ever considered serving as a Building or Block “Captain”? The position is a great way to stay involved, meet new people and contribute to a friendly and safe community. Captains play an important role in assisting during a disaster by checking on the welfare of neighbors and reporting injuries and property damage to the assigned reporting center.
 
Join the Disaster Preparedness Task Force at its upcoming introductory Good Neighbor Captain Training Meeting on November 21. Lean how to become a Captain, essential disaster preparedness tips and how to assist Village Security Department in reducing crime.
 
Captain training takes place Tuesday, November 21 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Clubhouse 5. For more information, contact disasterprep@vmsinc.org or 949-268-2356.
