Be Prepared. Have a Plan. Be Safe

shakeout_global_getready_300x250The Great Oregon ShakeOut Drill is good time to be reminded about earthquake readiness and learn the actions you can take to be safe.

Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:20 a.m. on October 20 during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills!

Federal, State, and local emergency management experts and other official preparedness organizations all agree that “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” is the appropriate action to reduce injury and death during earthquakes. Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills (www.ShakeOut.org) are opportunities to practice how to protect ourselves during earthquakes.

Remember in MOST situations, you will reduce your chance of injury during an earthquake if you:

DROP where you are, onto your hands and knees. This position protects you from being knocked down and also allows you to stay low and crawl to shelter if nearby.

COVER your head and neck with one arm and hand.

• If a sturdy table or desk is nearby, crawl underneath it for shelter
• If no shelter is nearby, crawl next to an interior wall (away from windows)
• Stay on your knees; bend over to protect vital organs

HOLD ON until the shaking stops.

• Under shelter: hold on to it with one hand; be ready to move with your
shelter if it shifts
• No shelter: hold on to your head and neck with both arms and hands.
If there is no table or desk near you, drop to the ground and then if possible move to an inside corner of the room. Be in a crawling position to protect your vital organs and be ready to move if necessary, and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms.

ASPIRE to help at Creswell High School

aspire-logo-2Encouraging Higher Education for Everyone

ASPIRE is a mentoring program that matches trained and supportive adult volunteer mentors with high school students to develop a plan to help them meet their education goals beyond high school.

Today’s students may not have the good fortune to have someone to help them figure out what to do after high school, let alone the myriad of education and training options. If you have a desire to help students explore college options, admissions, and financial aid, ASPIRE is for you. Become one of our trained and supportive adult volunteer mentors and work one-on-one with students throughout the year.

Creswell High School’s ASPIRE program is seeking volunteers for the 2016-17 school year. If you have a desire to help students explore their options after high school, contact Creswell High School today.

ASPIRE Coordinator: Joy DeMoss, (541) 895-6157 or
(541) 579-6782 or jdemoss@creswell.k12.or.us
