It looks like our new format really works. As DART evolves we have been trying to figure out new and unique ways of getting the message out, and I think we have finally hit the nail on the head.
In addition to the new signage (left and right) and our typical documentation, we have added an LED TV, a speaker system, and a dvd player that plays 911 footage. In this case, we used a 15 minute reel of recorded 911 calls from the Napa earthquake.
Interesting enough, we would ask people if they were prepared for a disaster or had a disaster kit. Many actually answered “Ill just call 911”. Well guess what. If we learned anything from our latest disasters, your not the only one that will be calling. Get in line with everyone who is trying to call in, and overtaxed 911 operators being taxed with everything from life threatening situations to someone who can’t turn their lights on.
The only solution is to BE PREPARED.
