LAKE ELSINORE TO SHAKE IT OUT
Community Organization Helps Southwest Riverside County Prepare For “The Big One”
In a ongoing effort to raise public awareness of the critical importance for individual, families and communities to plan and prepare for the occurrence of a catastrophic disaster event such as a major earthquake, the City of Lake Elsinore and its volunteer CITIZEN CORPS organization will be presenting its 4th annual SHAKE OUT EXPO on Saturday October 19th, 2013 from 10:00am to 3:00pm at the city’s historic Diamond Stadium, home of the Lake Elsinore STORM baseball team.
The SHAKE OUT EXPO is an admission free, “fun-festival” like public event designed to communicate through live presentations, hands on interactive demonstrations and exhibitions an essential knowledge for personal emergency disaster planning and preparedness.
Our central interactive attraction “THE SEVEN STEPS TO EARTHQUAKE SAFETY”, hosted by local CERT volunteers, walks our SHAKE OUT EXPO guests through safe and necessary emergency preparedness practices in a family fun way. Completing the SEVEN STEPS enters the guests in the EXPO’S hourly prize drawing for great emergency equipment and supplies.
Regionally based volunteer emergency response organizations such as CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) Ham Radio Operators from GTARC (Golden Triangle Radio Club) along with professional emergency responders CALFIRE and RIVERSIDE COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT will be on hand at the SHAKE OUT EXPO to demonstrate and share their planning knowledge in emergency preparedness as well as answer questions on what the public should expect from first responders not if, but when disaster strikes.
The SHAKE OUT EXPO is a unique community grown event inspired by and in support of the statewide GREAT CALIFORNIA SHAKE OUT earthquake event and drill which is scheduled for Thursday, October 17th at 10:17am.
