I am very thankful we all survived the major earthquake recently. The damage to roads, homes, schools and businesses was severe in some places, especially in the Anchorage and Mat-Su areas, but there were no serious injuries or loss of life. Many thanks to our emergency responders, DOT and utility workers, public officials and local public radio for keeping us informed, safe and for repairing the damage. I heard reports from teachers in our school district that the alert system and procedures worked well, allowing them to get their students to safety and help them remain calm during the tsunami warning. We have a lot for which to be thankful. The list of resources I provided on my Facebook posts following the earthquake are attached here. The Kenai Peninsula Borough will be hosting a Community Emergency Response Team Training in Soldotna, Kenai and Homer areas early in 2019.
