Lincoln City’s Emergency Preparedness Manager, Ken Murphy, recently invested in five cache containers (shipping containers) for emergency supplies. The containers are being distributed throughout the city. One was just dropped off on the north side of Roads End. That is, north of Logan Creek/Sal La Sea. It is at the bottom of NE 64th Drive (see picture) near the Tsunami Assembly area.
The container will be filled with the following emergency supplies which have already been purchased (phase 1):
10 Hand cranked flashlights
300 Emergency Blankets
300 Rain Ponchos
1 set of shovels and pick for latrine digging or clearing of debris
300 Hand warmers
10 pair of leather work gloves
Phase 2 items (not yet purchased) include:
6, 55 gallon water barrels with hand pumps
300 Datrex food bars
300 Water straws
300 Dust masks
2 basic first aid kits
This process is being managed by the City. They will improve the area near the container (clean up soil displaced by dropping it off), manage the lock/key on the container, update supplies, etc.
