GUSD Creates Mobile Emergency Center

In an abundance of caution and concern for the safety and well being of every student in the Glendale Unified School District, the district has created a mobile emergency center. The mobile emergency center consists of a trailer that can be quickly hauled to any school site or any other off-site location. The trailer becomes a lifeline for supplies and communication should an off-site evacuation be needed. The mobile emergency center can be attached to any of the district’s vehicles.

Each school site has been equipped with static store bins outfitted with emergency supplies should the unexpected, such as an earthquake or other threat, occur. The mobile emergency center will provide assistance should students have to be evacuated off-site and access to the school’s emergency supplies becomes unavailable.

The trailer came as a donation to the school district by Johnny Harrison from Lexus of Glendale. In addition, Harrison paid for the trailer to include the GUSD logo.

The mobile emergency center is equipped with a generator, bull horn, contact list, food, water, cones, emergency radios, hard hats with the district logo, and safety vests with the district logo, clipboards and pens.
