Cerro Coso prepares to ShakeOut
October 5, 2011
Cerro Coso Community College takes its role in an emergency seriously. "We strive to ensure that we respond effectively to emergencies that affect our students, employees, and community," said Jill Board, Cerro Coso President. The College will participate in the Great California ShakeOut. At 10:20 a.m. on Thursday, October 20, 2011 Cerro Coso students and employees will Drop, Cover, and Hold On to practice how they can protect themselves during an earthquake. All College campuses will participate in the drill. "Earthquake is a very real threat for all our campuses and we need to be prepared. Exercises like this one give us the opportunity to practice our response so we know what to expect in the event we have a real earthquake. Anything that affects the normal operations of a campus, calls for an action plan. Even though this drill was centered around an earthquake, practice in a coordinated effort will allow us to respond and recover from any major incident that may occur. We practice to ShakeOut not FreakOut!" – Board.
