Get Ready Atherton!
You may have heard about an exciting event in Atherton happening next week.
At 5:30 p.m. the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will kick off Atherton's disaster preparedness event by landing a helicopter in the grassy area on the left field of the baseball park.
At 6:00 p.m. the event doors will open at the Pavilion. Our event will consist of some short informational presentations from public safety officials (Police, Fire, USGS) and then a “trade show” of sorts with tables set up and manned by an array of emergency prep entities, such as emergency equipment/supply vendors, disaster management experts (Red Cross/USGS), utility companies and community groups (ADAPT – Atherton’s civilian neighborhood organizer and trainer), etc., where residents can get additional preparedness information, buy supplies and talk directly to people who can help you get prepared for a potential disaster.
