CA Flood Prep Week at Bridgeway Island School
Third graders at Bridgeway Island Elementary School participated in California Flood Preparedness Week by learning how to "plan, pack, protect" in case of a flood.
West Sacramento City Councilmember and West Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency board member Babs Sandeen, along with the California Department of Water Resources, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, led students through interactive exercises about flood safety and preparedness.
Students received certificates for completing the Flood Challenge video game. Through a simulation flood model, they got a close up look at how heavy rainfall leads to area flooding. Students also took home backpacks containing flashlights, rain ponchos, and emergency flood plan brochures to share share with their families as the rainy season approaches.
