Celia Lawley 760/782-9202 www.fiddlegirl.com by Michele Harvey Here is a column I wrote in late 2009. After this past week's CERT drill, Johnny Hake asked me to reprint this column because important information bears repeating. MLH More Disaster Preparedness Last week I wrote about preparing for major disasters. I've learned a lot in my CERT classes about disasters and how to deal with them. However there are so many ways we can all prepare ourselves for smaller inconveniences. This week I'm writing about smaller disasters. Getting stuck in a car, living through power outages, and other unexpected short term inconveniences can be less of a problem if we are prepared. Having lived in these mountains for over twenty-five years, I've picked up some wisdom which I now share with you. I keep at least ½ tank of gas in my car at all times. If I have to evacuate in a hurry and the local gas stations are closed, I may have to go quite a distance before I can find a place to fill my gas tank. Also, if I have to evacuate, I may not have money for gas. When we evacuated from the Cedar Fire; we had to drive from Wynola to the desert, and thento Temecula. Temecula was our first chance to buy gas. I keep a blanket in my car at all times. Through the years I've used it to cover myself when the air is extremely cold and my car heater won't work. I've put it on the ground to slowly drive vehicles out of ice patches. On really hot days I've covered my steering wheel with my blanket when I park my car. carry several bottles of water in my car, and some crackers, candy or nuts and a good book. I never know when I'll get stuck on the side of a road waiting for a tree limb to be cleared or for unexpected road work to keep me sitting in my car for long periods of time. In my car is a jacket, a terry cloth towel, a roll of paper towels, window cleaner, jumper cables, a box of Kleenex and sometimes a pair of clean, warm socks. They have all come in handy when needed. I also keep two carpet remnants in the trunk of my car. The bigger one is about 3 x 4 feet. I just never know when I might need one. At our house we keep some canned goods because they are a good source of liquid. We have bottled water, bleach to put drops in the water if we need it for drinking, blankets, sleeping bags, wood stick matches, candles and matches near candles and oil lamps. Duct tape is a necessity. It's so useful. One of my most interesting uses was to hold my tire chains together. Yes; it worked; but I don't recommend driving very far with this fix. Duct tape is so good for so many uses; we could probably even temporarily patch our roof with it. Disinfectant wipes are good to have in your home and in your car. Water to wash with isn't usually available during an earthquake or during a power outage. We are on a well and get our water when our electricity works. No electricity; no flowing water. I keep bottles of water in my freezer. When electricity goes out, the bottles of frozen water help keep food cold and when thawed, they are ready to drink or to use for cooking. We keep at least six 5-gallon bottles of water in case of emergencies. Sometimes they are really convenient for flushing toilets. Again, without electricity; we have no flowing water, so the 5-gallon bottles of water are great to have available. Antiseptics such as alcohol and peroxide are good to have. Bandages or old clean sheets that can be ripped into strips are good to have. A battery powered or wind up radio should be handy for listening to news updates. Flashlights and a supply of batteries, are • a must have. It's important to keep at least a three day supply of food, drinking water, first aid supplies and a plan for shelter. It may take that long for emergency responders to reach you during any large emergency. All of us need to be as prepared as possible for the next disaster, whether it be large or small. Not only will we get through the emergency much better when we are prepared; we will also have peace of mind, having fewer reasons to get stressed. These are my thoughts. High School Cheer Gearing Up For 2011-2012 Our local cheer leading squad at Julian High School held tryouts in May and began practicing on June 8th at the high school track. This year our school wil boast 16 cheerleaders. 12 Varsity and four "Varsity in Training." Rather than creating a Junior Varsity team, cheer advisor Robin Boland decided to create a category of trainees. This will give the girls the opportunity to earn cheering at away games by learning cheers and honing tffeir skills. Girls will be recognized / ,f for their efforts and promoted accordingly. Our cheerleaders will also be supporting our community at "Julian Day" at the San Diego County Fair. Cheer leading is one of the most expensive activities that students can participate in at JHS. Uniforms are custom made to each participants measurements. Good athletic shoes are a requirement and a sturdy bag to carry all their gear is also a must. In addition, the team needs WARM sweats for our Fall season home games. It gets awfu cold out there on the field. The cheer team works to keep the same basic uniform for at least two years. This year is the teams third year with the same uniform. As a compromise, the girls will be getting new skirts only. This way those who come into their 3rd year feel they are doing something new and fun, while keeping the costs down. The sweats need replacement each year, as normal wear and tear makes that necessary. Practice uniforms are part of the package as well. You will see many of the girls in these at community events. Trans portation costs have become a real issue for all sports at Julian High School. Each team is responsible for their own transportation costs.
