Education and Awareness Committee Report
February 22, 2002

Committee met twice, once to prepare the Safety Calendar mailing and a second time to prepare the Earthquake Awareness and Preparedness Week mailing. Nevada Bell copied the winning poster for the school packet and Sierra Pacific Power Company covered the cost of the calendar mailing and the Earthquake Awareness and Preparedness mailing.

We received over 170 entrants in the Earthquake Awareness and Preparedness Poster Contest. The information packet was mailed to the schools this week. We prepared 600 packets - included a copy of the Governorís proclamation, a script of an earthquake drill, how to do a drill, classroom hazard hunt checklist, home hazard hunt checklist, and suggestions for a school earthquake safety plan. Radio stations were reluctant to broadcast the drill this year. In the packet of information sent to the schools, we asked the schools to hold a drill sometime during the week. We also included several questions about the School Safety Calendar and Earthquake Awareness Week. We hope to have responses from the schools in a about two weeks.
