Councilman Wants Monthly Emergency Prep Day
Councilman Tom LaBonge suggested bringing back the Cold-War era air raid sirens back into use in 2003. That, so far, has never gone through. But in light of the recent earthquake last Tuesday and considering how poorly people are prepared, he's called for the City Council to ask Gov. Schwarzenegger to declare the first Friday of every
month “Emergency Preparedness Day” in California. It would be a monthly reminder to have schools hold drills and for people to be aware of their emergency plans. The motion will be considered next week by the council.
