Clackamas Fire participates in ShakeOut at Alliance; OCHS marketing students represent

Students at Alliance Charter Academy in Oregon City duck and cover under desks during Clackamas Fire's event to prepare staff, parents and teachers for an earthquake.At 10:17 a.m. on Oct. 17, a "Great Oregon ShakeOut" exercise was conducted at the Alliance Charter Academy in Oregon City.

Community Emergency Response Team members from throughout the area participated in this event to train staff, parents and teachers. CERT members practiced a response plan in the event of an earthquake in our region.

Clackamas firefighters participated in the statewide "Great Oregon ShakeOut" effort, focusing on the steps students and staff can take in the initial moments of an earthquake. The drill took additional steps to practice a parent-student reunification process, as if it were real.

"The knowledge of what to do during an earthquake is equally as important as practicing the process of reuniting parents and students in the hours that follow," said Clackamas Fire spokesman Brandon Paxton. "Clackamas Fire's Emergency Management Team has coordinated this exercise to emphasize the importance of knowing what to do and what steps to take, should an earthquake occur in our region."

Paxton encouraged the public to spread the word about the importance of knowing what to do when an earthquake occurs by taking part in the Great Oregon ShakeOut. More information and resources to educate your family and friends can be found at
