Community Safety and Awareness Report for Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

•Highway 101, 4 miles north of Garberville, is now open to North and Southbound traffic. For updated information call 1-800-GAS-ROAD.

•The U.S. Coast Guard and regional emergency response partners are scheduled to participate in a full-scale mass rescue exercise, tomorrow, April 13th, at various locations in Eureka.  Coast Guard Group/Air Station Humboldt Bay will team up with more than 24 state, local, and industry partners to conduct the largest full-scale mass rescue exercise in regional history.  During the exercise, victim actors will be rescued from the water at the scene of the incident, transported to a land triage site, and then transported to regional hospitals for treatment. The American Red Cross will also be exercising their family reception center capability during the exercise.

•April is National Safe Digging Month, and Pacific Gas and Electric Company reminds customers to call 811 before starting any excavation project, large or small.  Whether planting a tree, installing a sprinkler system or building a fence, homeowners and professional excavators need to know where gas and electric lines lie underground to prevent injuries, property damage and outages.
