Mt. SAC will host Emergency Preparedness Week Sept 15-19 with five days of workshops, displays, and drills designed to make the college community more aware of what to do before and during an emergency.
Workshops on everything from first aid to fire extinguisher training to caring for pets during a disaster are being offered. A keynote address on "Understanding Earthquakes" featuring a Cal Tech scientist Erin Burkett will be held on Monday, Sept. 15, at 9:30 a.m., in the Design Technology Center auditorium, Building 13-1700.
Emergency coordinators are also conducting emergency drills at surprise times and locations Wednesday, Sept. 17, between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. The campus is encouraged to review:
• General evacuation procedures for students and instructors
• General evacuation procedures for employees
• Emergency assembly area information
Exhibits and displays from community groups and vendors such as the Safe N Ready, Safe T-Proof, and the American Red Cross will also be part of the event. Participants can experience an 8.0 magnitude earthquake through the Shake House.

Earth-moving machines trundling across the campus south of Temple Avenue were a familiar sight all summer long as teams of the giant "belly scrapers" moved 367,000 cubic feet of earth as part of a major $5.7-million grading project.
The project will level the hill just west of Hilmer Lodge Stadium to make way for the Athletics Complex East development, which will include stadium renovation, new playing and practice fields, tennis courts, and the eventual relocation of the gymnasium and swimming pool.
The earth was exported from the hill to an area near the Wildlife Sanctuary to level the ground for the nearly 6-acre Athletics Complex East and nearly 12-acre site for a potential future Fire Technology Academy on campus.
