Mock Evacuation and Egress Fire Drills

Hi NRG Firewise Community,
Happy new year! We are organizing our 5 egress fire drills and our big Mock Evacuation for spring 2023. Originally, we had planned to run the Mock Evacuation on Jan 28th, 2023, but we will be doing this in April. Instead, we have decided to run 5 egress fire drills first to prepare for the Mock Evacuation.

I’m meeting with our Board of Directors in 2 weeks and will post the plan for all of the above at that time. In the meantime, please purchase your MURS radios and ask Keith or Eric to program them for you. Join our monthly MURS radio tests on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 9:00-9:30 AM) to learn how to use them and to communicate with all of the Micro Community leaders. The next MURS test is tomorrow: Jan 21st.

We will assume that nobody has electricity, internet, or cell service when we conduct the egress fire drills and the mock evacuation. All communication will be conducted through the MURS radios. It’s time for all 300 members of our community to get on board with radios.

Thanks and please pass this message along to neighbors who have not joined your Micro Communities or this forum.
