Town Of Moraga

Moraga Participates in Great Shakeout

On Thursday, October 17, Town staff participated in the Great ShakeOut by activating their Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and responded to a scenario facilitated by MOFD Chief Healy and Division Chief Lee. The activation and response drill occurred at MOFD Station 42 on Moraga Road, and tested the Town’s EOC equipment, the volunteer radio system, and the ability to communicate with other participating agency EOCs in Orinda, Lafayette, and at Saint Mary’s College. After the drill, a critique was held on all facets of the response effort. One of the lessons learned was the importance of communication and shared resources among the Lamorinda agencies to best serve the communities. The Town is committed to participating in the Great ShakeOut drills with the expectation that the future location will be at 331 Rheem Boulevard, where the EOC is being incorporated into the current remodel for the new Town Meeting facility.
