Weathering the Woolsey Fire
Preparedness and teamwork keep residents safe and happy
Thanks to preparation, cooperation and a dazzling amount of dedication, Silverado Calabasas and its residents came through the tragic California Woolsey Fire unscathed. Each Silverado location has its own plan for natural disasters, and the Calabasas plan allowed for the temporary relocation of 71 residents to go smoothly and without incident.
At the first sign that a fire threatened the community, the entire team, in conjunction with all of the local Silverado communities and At Home and Hospice branches, swung into action and coordinated the complex logistics of transportation, scheduling, support, supplies, equipment and communication with families. Between November 9 and November 20, Calabasas residents enjoyed a short “vacation” as they experienced the new scenery of Silverado communities as far south as Orange County.
Silverado sends its sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of those who helped ensure the safety and wellbeing of residents and staff during this crisis. From the Silverado associates who went above and beyond, ignoring their own hardships to provide for residents’ needs, to the first responders who bravely stood in harm’s way to ensure that residents would have a home to return to, we offer our gratitude and praise.
