Event description

Description

Battalion 10 is hosting a mini-disaster drill to give CERT members a chance to utilize the CERT skills they have been practicing all year.

The drill scenario:

A significant earthquake occurs just as you are parking your car at the Rec Center where you were about to attend a monthly CERT meeting. Knowing there is a potential of several people on the property - you and other CERT members in the parking lot immediately put on PPE so you can help, where needed. You notice that a Staging Area is being established and you report for duty.

After checking in with Staging - you and a Buddy will get assigned to a job. Remember the ICS structure. You will have ONE assignment at a time, you will have ONE supervisor to whom you will report. When the assignment is completed, you will go back to your Supervisor who will give you a new assignment. Some jobs will be short and some will run the duration of the drill. :) If time permits, we will reset and do the drill a 2nd time.

~~

Please bring full PPE. Also consider bringing water and snacks since the meeting will run 3 hours. I have also opened-up tickets for Volunteer Disaster Patients - so if you know anyone who would like to be a victim or if you would prefer to be a victim for the drill, please order that ticket.

Thank you for being committed to making Los Angeles a safer community!
