If you can make this one, great, if not, no problem, there will be many opportunities to help out.
If this is your first time to volunteer you must view the Caltrans safety DVD for participants, which you can download from adopt-a-highway-dot-ca-gov.
When the page opens there is a section in the lower left column under Safety DVD. You want the second and last one, “For all Participants.” It is a 15 minute video and takes a while to download. So an easy alternative is to view it here by clicking here on YouTube! Whichever one you view, just make sure it is Part Two.
We will meet at Scrambl’z Diner, 775 E. Dunn Ave. in Morgan Hill. I will conduct a quick safety briefing and hand out PPE (personal protective equipment) in the parking lot at 9am. If you want to eat or drink prior to that, arrive earlier. You will need to wear long pants and footwear with ankle support as shown in the video.
You may wish to bring water. Those of you coming from a certain area (i.e. East bay) may wish to carpool. I will be coming from San Jose and can take four people if anyone wants to ride with me. We will be leaving most of our vehicles in the parking lot of Scramble’s and taking as few vehicle to the highway as needed.
