Saturday, August 5, 2017, Ross Valley Fire Department, Marin County Sheriff’s Office, Sleepy Hollow Fire Protection District, FIRESafe MARIN, and SHHA will hold an evacuation drill focused on the Van Winkle Drive neighborhoods. All Sleepy Hollow residents are invited to participate and attend a Safety Fair and wildfire simulation exercise at the Community Center - the drill should take no more than 30 minutes, beginning shortly after 9am. The Safety Fair and wildfire simulation will be open until 11am.
Residents in the vicinity of Van Winkle Drive (and neighboring streets) will receive a “reverse 9-1-1” emergency notification by phone with instructions to evacuate to a rallying point (Sleepy Hollow Community Center, 1341 Butterfield Rd) where we’ll have a Safety Fair with information and demonstrations on fire safety and evacuation tips. The county's state-fo-the-art wildfire simulation "sand-table" will be on display to help emergency managers plan for an eventual wildfire in Sleepy Hollow, and provide residents a glimpse at what a real wildfire might do to their neighborhood.
TIP: you'll receive alerts by cell phone, text, or email only if you’ve previously enrolled your number(s) online at www.AlertMarin.org
Please plan to participate - use the opportunity to inform your family and prepare for the evantuality that a wildfire will strike in Sleepy Hollow!
