Arcadia Emergency Operations Center Drill Today

Personnel from all City Departments participated in a simulated emergency drill earlier today at the Arcadia Emergency Operations Center (EOC) located at the Police Department. The drill was in response to a simulated wild fire in the canyons above Arcadia and related emergencies to the fire.

Emergency preparedness measures can save lives in an event of a disaster. Professional and practiced emergency procedures are essential in limiting chaos. The City of Arcadia values preparedness measures to assure the community will be well organized in an event of adversity. Planning for emergencies makes a great difference in how quickly cities respond. Drills like this are conducted periodically to ensure that our personnel are well prepared to deal with all types of emergencies.
