We made it through the fire season without a burn, and the 2010 tsunami messed up Crescent City and Santa Cruz Harbor, but it missed Muir Beach. We may be good, but we sure are lucky. Every winter the storm window opens, creating the possibility of another corker like the winter when our neighbors at the bottom of Shoreline were flooded out of their homes.
The Muir Beach Area Emergency Preparedness Committee has been meeting regularly. Its members have contacted their neighbors to distribute emergency preparedness information and to complete the Household Registries. More than two-thirds of these Household Registries are now on file with their Neighborhood Liaisons, the Muir Beach Volunteer Fire Department and the Emergency Preparedness Committee. We are better prepared than most communities, but we still have a long way to go.
In addition to making sure that all of our Household Registries are complete and up-to-date, the Emergency Preparedness Committee strongly recommends that each and every household have appropriate first aid, emergency and food supplies to last at least a week. Please check out the Disaster Supplies Kit and the Recommended Foods List for specific recommendations, and make sure that you, your family and your friends are prepared.
If all this emergency preparation and purchasing of supplies seems like a bit much at once, please consider the attached Emergency Preparedness Calendar Checklist and break your emergency preparations and purchases into twenty-six weekly installments. To help make this as easy as possible, please check this website and/or your community bulletin board once a week and we’ll post that week’s emergency suggestions.
Finally, the Emergency Preparedness Committee also feels that first aid, CPR and Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) should also be a high priority for as many of our neighbors as possible. Accordingly, we periodically schedule first aid and CPR classses for the community. We’ll publish the details as they become available on this website.
Muir Beach Residents, please download both pages of the Household Registry Form, fill them out, and put them in the Muir Beach Volunteer Fire Department mail box across from the Pelican Inn.
This Household Registry provides the information necessary to ensure that
the Muir Beach community, its Volunteer Fire Department and other responders
are prepared to take action knowledgably and effectively to everything from
individual emergencies to regional disasters. It helps the community understand
and organize the skills, equipment and supplies available. It has been completed
by nearly everyone in the Muir Beach Area, and is provided to all new residents.
If your Household Registry is not on file or needs to be updated, please
download the attached Household Registry form and return it to the MBVFD
Fire Chief Steve Wynn in the Muir Beach Volunteer Fire Department mail box.
