Moraga Country Club Evacuation Drill a Success

Contra Costa County’s first evacuation drill took place at the Moraga Country Club (MCC) on December 15. The drill, coordinated by Moraga-Orinda Fire, Moraga Police, Orinda Police and Lamorinda CERT, was designed to test the Town's ability to manage a large-scale evacuation from one of the Town's 23 evacuation zones. MCC residents were notified using the Contra Costa County Community Warning System and two lanes of traffic were sent toward Orinda on Moraga Way. The event was a success as over 120 vehicles were evacuated without incident. Both evacuees and public safety participants were surveyed to identify both successes and lessons learned. A second evacuation drill is scheduled for January 26 in Orinda. Thank you to all who participated and helped our community prepare for emergencies!
