Come and Participate in CH Shakeout 2019
Posted on 04/02/2019

Shakeout 2019 will take place on Saturday, April 13 from 9 to 11 a.m. at City Hall. A major part of the communication drill will include citizen participation by using ribbons that indicate the medical status of each home. We encourage residents to place these emergency triage ribbons on their door handles or railings by 9 a.m., giving our block captains two hours to record resident participation. After the event, we ask that you keep your ribbons for use in case of an actual disaster. If you do not have the ribbons, a limited number of them will be available in the CHPD front desk. You may also contact your local block captain for more information about how to obtain ribbons.

If there is no ribbon at an address, the residence won't be counted as participating. Our goal is to see a 20 percent participation rate. We encourage each resident to remind neighbors to place ribbons out. 

The CH Amateur Radio Club will spearhead the reporting and gathering of drill participation while collating data that will help emergency teams to plan for an actual natural disaster. The city will set up an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at City Hall in the Community Room.

All citizens are welcome to come and visit the EOC during the shakeout drill.
