Tri-City Community Disaster Forum

by Judy King

The Tri-Cities Emergency Services Association (TESA) is presenting the Tri-City Community Disaster Forum on June 7, 2006, at Washington High School Gymnasium, 38442 Fremont Blvd. from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Tri-City residents are invited to attend this informative meeting.

TESA, formed in 1974, brings together essential Tri-City public service agencies to achieve effective coordination, planning, response, and recovery for disasters within the Tri-Cities area. This regional preparedness collaboration crosses city borders for more effective response and recovery for all residents of the Tri-City Community.

According to Victor Valdes, Fremont Division Fire Chief, the first half of the June 7 Forum will focus on earthquake preparedness, a primary concern given the proximity of the Hayward Fault. Thomas Brocher, of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) will be one of the speakers. Representatives from TESA agencies will explain their agencies' roles in the event of a disaster. Residents will learn the simple yet important steps they can take to prepare for all types of disasters. In the Forum's second half, panelists will take questions from attendees.

TESA agencies include:
Alameda County Water District (ACWD)
Union Sanitary District (USD)
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E)
Kaiser Permanente Medical Center
Washington Hospital Healthcare System
Ohlone Community College District
City of Fremont - Fire and Police Services
City of Newark - Fire and Police Services
City of Union City - Fire and Police Services
Fremont Unified School District (FUSD)
