Los Altos History Museum’s “Our Community Prepares”

October 17, 2019 @ 8:00 am - January 19, 2020 @ 5:00 pm


On October 17, 1989, the Loma Prieta earthquake rocked the Bay Area. As the 30th anniversary approaches, we reflect on how natural disasters have shaken our lives and how our resilient community has come together to rebuild. Are we ready for the next one?

Co-produced with the City of Los Altos’ Division of Emergency Preparedness, the exhibition will feature historic photographs of the aftermaths of Loma Prieta and other local brushes with disaster. Related programming will also teach visitors how to prepare for the next natural disaster. Learn how to pack a kit; find exit routes; and care for yourself, your loved ones, and your pets during an emergency.
