The recent earthquakes have reminded all of us of the need to be prepared for emergencies. Besides storing food, water, and fuel, there are other things you can do to be prepared. Ready OC is a great place to go to begin your preparations. Another excellent tool available to Orange County residents is AlertOC. By registering withAlertOC, time-sensitive voice messages from the County or City in which you live or work may be sent to your home, cell or business phone to notify you of emergencies or critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions, such as evacuations. Text messages may also be sent to cell phones, e-mail accounts and hearing impaired receiving devices. The California Office of Emergency Services also provides useful information to California’s residents about being prepared. I encourage all Californians to take advantage of this reminder that we live in earthquake country by getting prepared in advance of the next big earthquake, where we may not be as fortunate.

On Thursday, May 1, Fullerton College is hosting the opening night of its Student Art Exhibition and the dedication of a Sister City Mural. The event, which will take place just outside the Fullerton College Art Gallery (1000 Building), is scheduled to begin with a social hour at 5 p.m. and will be followed by a brief artist lecture, mural unveiling, and the announcement of the Student Art Exhibition Award winners.
Fullerton College Art Department faculty collaborated with artist Rivera Novoa to create the mural which depicts artists from Morelia, Mexico and Fullerton painting the landmarks and subjects of the two cities. It will reside in the Art Building’s central staircase. Funding for the project was provided by Fullerton College, the Murals of Brotherhood Project, and the Universidad Michona de San Nicolas de Hidalgo.
The annual Student Art Exhibition presents the best student artwork created during the academic year. Prizes are awarded to the students who demonstrate the highest artistic merit. Many works will be available for purchase. Parking and admission are free, and attendees are invited to stay and tour the exhibition.
