 WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT:
 EARTHQUAKE AWARENESS WEEK, APRIL 27 - MAY 1
 In the wake of Wednesday's 6.1 quake in Southern California, remember that Washington is observing Earthquake Awareness Week this coming week, April 27 - May 1, according to the Washington State Department of Community Development, Emergency Management Division.
 Media should receive a media packet about the event by the end of this week. The theme of the week is "Earthquake Safety at Home."
 The public will be interested to know that their local emergency management agencies are observing this week. Working with the state Emergency Management Division, local agencies have materials on earthquake preparedness and are ready for inquiries from the public.
 Local emergency management agencies are just now receiving in the mail packets of mini-planning guides. There are seven guides with information on the following subjects:
 - Individual, family and home planning for earthquakes
 - Family earthquake plan
 - Apartment/mobile home planning
 - Planning guide for senior citizens
 - Planning for people with disabilities
 - Emergency supply checklist
 - Duck, cover and hold tips
 Please promote Earthquake Awareness Week in the next few days. The Department of Community Development would like citizens of Washington to be well prepared for the eventuality of earthquakes in the Northwest. Not just California.
