By October 8, 2019Press Releases

LOS ALTOS, CA (October 8, 2019) – What would you do if you had no water following a natural disaster? In recognition of National “Imagine a Day without Water,” the Los Altos History Museum invites the public to a “Water Safety and Reliability Workshop” Wednesday, October 23, 7-8:30pm.

The free workshop, offered in partnership with the City of Los Altos and California Water Service Company, is part of the emergency preparedness exhibition at the Museum, titled “Our Community Prepares: Acts of Nature, Then and Now,” on display through January 19, 2020. Cal Water is a corporate sponsor for the exhibition, along with the Los Altos Community Foundation.

“I am really excited for this emergency response exhibit because we can tell our story of what Cal Water does behind the scenes of an emergency, whether it be providing water for firefighters or maintaining water quality after an earthquake,” said Mark Lauricella, Interim Customer Service Manager with California Water Service Company.

Admission to the workshop is free, but reservations are required at losaltoshistory.org/waterworkshop

Los Altos History Museum began in 1977 with the opening of the J. Gilbert Smith House historic farmhouse, built in 1905. In 2001, the Los Altos History Museum opened its modern building next door, which houses the Museum’s collections, permanent and changing exhibits, store and administrative offices. The Museum and its grounds are available for rent during evenings and weekends. Its collections are owned by the City of Los Altos and are managed by an independent nonprofit organization, whose staff and volunteers are responsible for all programs and operations.

The Museum and J. Gilbert Smith House are open Thursday through Sunday, from noon-4pm. Admission is free. The gardens, outdoor agricultural exhibits and picnic area are accessible beyond Museum hours.
