People, pets and emergency kits turned out in unanticipated large numbers for Gleneden Beach’s first Tsunami Stroll during Thursday’s Great Oregon Shake-out. Ninety seven residents participated in the drill by walking from their homes to one of the two designated “Temporary Tsunami Assembly Areas.” Many turned out with their dogs, cats, and even a pet bird as well as their custom-made emergency kits.

“It exceeded all of my expectations,” said Kay Wyatt, president of the area’s Community Emergency Response Team. Many residents commented on how much more positive and hopeful they felt after completing the stroll and indicated they felt empowered to "be prepared, not scared”. After the drill, participants attended a celebration at the Gleneden Beach Community Hall. Prizes were given to the most “senior” and youngest participants, largest family group, the cutest couple and the best decorated go-bag. The competition for the most “senior” participant was particularly stiff and was awarded to a very spry woman of 93! Twenty-five buckets packed with emergency gear were given and everyone received items to add to their personal emergency kits.

Earlier in the week residents attended a Tsunami Town Hall at the Gleneden Beach Community Hall to learn about the tsunami risks to this area, how to be prepared and what to expect for the Tsunami Stroll. Participants were given new tsunami maps and encouraged to identify at least two different routes to high ground.

“I am very pleased with the participation from the citizens and all the hard work from the entities that made this happen,” said Assistant Fire Chief, Hank Walling. Many individuals, businesses, and organizations donated time, talents and resources to make these events a success. In addition to the Depoe Bay Fire District, sponsors and partners included the Gleneden Beach Community Club, Gleneden Beach Christian Church, Depoe Baykery, Pirate Coffee Shop, Lincoln Beach Thriftway, NW Natural Gas, Red Cross, Depoe Bay Fire District CERT, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, PAC West, and the Oregon State Police.
