SHAKEOUT SPOTLIGHT


Responders checking OK signs in Vallecito Mobile Home Park

For the 2008 ShakeOut, over 98% of the senior residents of the Vallecito Mobile Home Park took cover for 3 minutes and then placed OK signs in their windows for volunteer responders to check. Several residents pretended to be injured, and the responders followed procedures in place for such emergencies. The residents participate in a similar drill every six months!
