Staying Safe in Orinda~Comprehensive Guidance From Orinda's Top Safety Officials


Following an armed robbery that occurred in an Orinda residential driveway last fall, community members asked Orinda Association President, Cindy Powell, to bring together Orinda safety officials to address community concerns, resulting in a November 2016 Orinda Safety Forum. Open to the public, the forum featured police, fire, and emergency preparedness officials, who shared important information and answered questions on safety. Produced and created by Susan Garell, the video Staying Safe in Orinda~Comprehensive Guidance From Orinda's Top Safety Officials is based on the forum and further in-depth interviews.
