The Gateway Project
Another New Project Has
Reared its Ugly Head
It is to our best interest that we ALL keep informed as to what's happening in the water industry in our area. Patsy.
Here is an interesting article on Ground Water Vulnerability!
Here is another very interesting article - Climate Change Threatens California Water Supply
Earthquakes are a concern in this area. We are sitting on one of the largest fault-lines in California, and it is only a matter of when.....
It isn't difficult to be prepared. Make a list of First Aid supplies (bandages, meds, first aid booklet), and purchase a plastic container to hold them. Multiply this by the number of automobiles you drive, plus one.
In my car I keep a First Aid Kit, a small piece of luggage with a change of clothes, one of those inexpensive 'throws', a can of hard Christmas candy & a container of clean fresh water. It doesn't take up much room and it could save your life.
For your home, you need a larger First Aid Kit, water (enough for at least 1 week), clothing (warm & cold), a supply of food that doesn't require a lot of water to cook, (don't forget a can opener), paper goods, plastic bags, toiletries, flash lights & batteries, a small battery radio, perhaps a camp stove with a can of fuel. Don't forget any medications you take regularly (sometimes this is harder to do but important!)
(Note from editor: Be sure to recycle your emergency supplies from time to time. That way you will not be caught in an emergency with supplies that are years old and have gone bad.)
All of these items can be stored in a couple of those see-through tubs. They can even be stored out of the house in a dry area, away from heat. Encourage your entire family to be prepared.
Last, have a plan! Know who you will call and where you will meet if you are away from home. Know the alternate routes you may need in case of road closures. REMEMBER we are rural. Should a disaster occur, we might be on our own for at least 1-2 weeks. Our emergency response is limited, and most will be concentrated in the more populated areas. I hope this message is helpful to you all.
