Congratulations to Nancy, Carol and Robin for organizing their first BAT drill. This BAT is the largest BAT in Los Altos (~80 homes), and they have developed mini-blocks with individual captains to keep it organized. They activated and exercised their BAT neighborhood with a number of simulated conditions that included:
- child trapped in playhouse by a fallen tree limb;
- gas leak that needed to be turned off;
- water leak on a front porch;
- and a missing dog.
Click on the picture to see a close-up of some of these activities. Each household was asked to display their HELP/OK sign and some of the mini-blocks held specific training sessions on topics such as search techniques. The exercise was followed by a neighborhood pot luck and a children’s bicycle parade. Well done BAT #111!
