Our emergency training includes fire, earthquake, lockdown, and evacuation drills given by our CRISTA Security Team and the Shoreline Fire Department.”

I would like to commend Cristwood Park staff on their efforts to protect themselves and their residents from COVID. It’s been a concern of ours since last March and we have been relieved to see so few cases in the Cristwood Park community. I would like to thank the staff and leadership for their diligence in maintaining good protocols throughout this pandemic.
