Emergency Preparedness Meeting. Hubbard Hall, Thursday, August 15th at 4:30 p.m.
The recent Ridgecrest quakes were a bit of a wake-up call. The good news is that all the park homes have been required to have state-certified earthquake systems, so Valencia Lea is far less vulnerable than other parks in the are. But, that said, each resident needs to know how to prepare for and react to a quake when one occurs. Towards that end, CEO Chris Trevino will conduct a seminar on how to turn off your home’s utilities in the event of a catastrophe. You’ll learn how to identify and operate your water, power, and gas utility shut-offs and you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you have the ability to help yourself and your neighbors here at Valencia Lea in the event of a disaster. We’ll also cover some of the safety features available for your home to help minimize damage if indeed the ground begins to shake. So don;t miss this month’s Emergency Preparedness meeting, because it’s not a matter of if but when.
