Edwards County Tips

After you enroll in a club, you will get your project books. You will select at least one project to work on. There are nearly 100 different projects to pick-from aerospace to woodworking. As you complete your projects, you will MASTER SKILLS that may lead to future career and life choices. Mastery relates to "self sufficiency", believing in yourself and knowing you are capable of achieving goals and mastering tasks.

Emergency Preparedness Group


Earthquake- The Silent Event

Ground movement is seldom the cause of death but injuries certainly can occur from losing balance. Most casualties occur from falling objects. If you are indoors- stay thereā€¦ if outdoors- stay there. Avoid unnecessary movement. Since earthquakes occur without warning, our reactions must be immediate: DROP, COVER and HOLD ON!

We live in an active earthquake hazard region and it is important to be prepared. Knowing what you can do and how to respond with protective actions can make yourself, your family and community safe. No one will know the severity, length or frequency of quakes.

For additional preparation tips, go to the bulletin board on the right side of this page and titled "Preparing For Emergencies".
