  7. "This is the best single effort in emergency preparedness in my nearly 20 years in the business. The Golden Guardian / Great Shake Out project did more to prepare our cities than all previous efforts combined for many years past. I have never had so much participation and interest in disaster preparedness. And it continues!” - Los Angeles County Emergency Manager
