CAMPUS IS DESIGNED TO BE A REGIONAL EMERGENCY CENTER
Think of Castaic High as a sanctuary. In addition to being a world class educational facility, the school is capable of sheltering hundreds of local residents in times of flood, earthquake, blizzard, fire or unforeseen disaster. It will be a base headquarters for Red Cross and other private/public emergency services.
FIRE DEPARTMENT HELIPAD
The Hart District is providing safe landings for our firefighters. Los Angeles County Fire Department asked for an emergency helicopter landing pad to serve the Castaic area. A hilltop was graded for it. The helipad is 1.1 acres and rests at the 2,010-foot elevation.
ENGINEERED TO BE SEISMICALLY SOUND
Safety is the highest priority for our children. A lot of work was put into checking, double-checking, triple-checking and far beyond that to make sure the foundation is solid under this school. Settlement monitors are buried 20 feet underground and test the soil for as deep as 105 feet in places to make sure the school grounds are safe for construction.
LESS TRAVEL TIME. LESS CHANCE OF ACCIDENTS
A study by the Wm. S. Hart District discovered that when Castaic High School opens, local students will save an average 17 miles of commuting time to other high schools in the Santa Clarita Valley.
