What do you mean by a public shelter/emergency trailer? There are no designated public shelters for use during any emergency. There would need to be hundreds to shelter the population of Palo Alto.

There are several emergency trailers - stocked with emergency supplies by the CERT (formerly PANDA) group - one at each of six fire stations. There is now a new mobile EOC (Emergency Operations Center) van for use if the present EOC next to the Dispatch Center in City Hall becomes inoperable.

Go to Web Link for information on what to do during an emergency/earthquake.
