The actual query was does any community have a plan for a natural disaster or potential life threatening emergency/catastrophe. Yes, we have an Emergency Prep team which educates members on preparing for and reacting to emergencies. They participate in our county wide citizen-based Neighborhood Response Organization, The biggest potential disaster in our area is an earthquake followed by a tsunami. Because of our location on a peninsula that is primarily accessible by ferry and a single highway along major water bodies, emergency supplies are important. We have a plan for evacuation to higher ground in the event of a tsunami. Our best warning system is door to door; although each household has an emergency air horn to summon immediate help for a personal emergency, that would be an excellent way to alert the community of a bigger emergency. We do have a large propane generator and propane tank to serve our Common House in times of power outage. They are large enough to provide some heat and lights for members sheltering in the CH. I would think coho communities in areas with high wildfire risks would have emergency plans for evacuation. Carolyn Salmon Quimper Village Port Townsend WA > >
