EvergreenHeatlh and the Great ShakeOut | Letter

Millions of people worldwide will practice how to drop, cover and hold on, on Oct. 17 during Great ShakeOut earthquake drills. Lake Washington School District is participating as well as Kaiser Permanente.

Washingtonians can join them by registering for the 2019 Great Washington ShakeOut. Participating is a great way for EvergreenHealth employees, their patients and others to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes.

I wrote our seven elected officials at EvergreenHealth to encourage them to participate in the program since the hospital is so concerned about seismic retrofitting, as per the failed $345 million bond. They never responded how and if they are preparing their employees for the big one. EvergreenHealth’s lack of planning doesn’t encourage me to go there. Hopefully, our community hospital will take its head out of the sand and and join other hospitals participating in the Great ShakeOut.
