OEPC Volunteers at Work During Drill

Staff Report

It was a simulated emergency that brought Oakmont volunteers out in the neighborhoods and at key locations for an emergency drill Saturday, Oct. 22.

Bright yellow vests set off area volunteers walking their neighborhoods, coordinating with communications volunteers at each of Oakmont’s major venues. It was one of three drills held every year to sharpen volunteers’ readiness to respond to and recover from a major disaster.

If a problem can’t be resolved at the neighborhood level, the problem is relayed to operators in emergency centers. Problems that require further help are transmitted to an emergency operations center at the Berger Center. Volunteers there can request help from Santa Rosa Fire Department Station 7, which is part of the Santa Rosa emergency operations system.
