    Central Elementary School in Albany, Ore., built in 1915, had an assembly, earthquake drill and building walk through April 24, to raise awareness and celebrate $1.5 million in seismic upgrades the school was awarded through the Seismic Rehabilitation Grant Program managed by Oregon Emergency Management. Since 2009, state-funded seismic retrofit grants have been awarded to 21 K-12 schools, three Oregon community college and university campuses, and 18 public safety facilities deemed in danger during an earthquake. The governor’s budget requests $30 million for this priority for the next two years, and legislators will decide the final funding level later this spring.
