On June 8th, the FICRA Trust Emergency Preparation Team participated in an emergency response drill testing preparedness for a major earthquake. About 40 FICRA Team members took part in the Cascadia Rising exercise, along with the Pierce County Department of Emergency Management and other local, state and federal agencies. The FICRA Team will review outcomes of the exercise on the 14th and prepare an assessment report. The News Tribune published an online article highlighting Fox Island prior to the drill.
Pierce County staff will be at a public forum at the Nichols Community Center on the evening of August 2nd to provide Fox Island residents with an update on the bridge. Additional information will be provided in the upcoming newsletter.
The annual FICRA Fair is coming up on Saturday August 13th. Additional information and Booth Application forms are available here.
