The Great California ShakeOut

City of Chino Participates in Annual Event

Post Date:10/13/2016 6:08 PM

The City of Chino will, “Drop, Cover and Hold On” for the annual Great California ShakeOut drill taking place on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 10:20 a.m. All city buildings and employees will join millions across the world participating in the drill.

Furthermore, the city will use this opportunity to test Chino Notify, the mass-emergency notification system used by the city. Last year, the City of Chino mass-notification system was upgraded to allow community members a choice in the types of alert notifications to receive and the preferred method to receive them. Even though community members, who have previously registered will continue to receive emergency alerts from Chino Notify, we are requesting that registrants re-validate their information in order to access the updated features and subscriptions.

The Great California ShakeOut is the perfect time to sign up for emergency alerts as well as update family, business and organization profiles at www.cityofchino.org/chinonotify.

City Manager, Matthew Ballantyne states, “It is critical for community members to register and maintain their contact information in our mass-notification system.  We know cities with the ability to communicate with residents during emergencies and natural disasters can save lives.  Chino Notify is an additional communication tool in our arsenal of emergency preparation.”

The City of Chino encourages individuals, families, businesses, schools, government agencies, and organizations to sign up at www.ShakeOut.org/register and participate in this year’s earthquake drill.
