Emergency preparedness events coming up in Oakmont



Oakmont is planning two emergency preparedness events in October. On Oct. 18 there will be a simulated emergency drill, and on Oct. 25, there will be an Emergency Preparedness Forum and Fair.

The Oct. 18 emergency drill will run from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. It will be an Oakmont-wide drill and will include the COPE groups, the Zone Communicators and a network of amateur radio operators.

Eric McHenry, Santa Rosa’s chief information officer, has agreed to activate the Santa Rosa Emergency Operations Center for this event. The scenario will be a simulated magnitude 7.5 earthquake on the Hayward/Rodgers Creek fault affecting all of Santa Rosa. There will be loss of electricity, broken water mains, gas leaks and many injuries. All emergency services such as 9-1-1 will be down.

The Oct. 25 Forum and Fair will take place at the Berger Center, 2-4 p.m. The plan is to have a number of agencies associated with emergency preparedness be present to answer Oakmont residents’ questions and to pass out literature. There will be a number of agencies including COPE, SoCoAlert, Red Cross, PG&E, City of Santa Rosa, SRFD and CalFire. There will also be a table showing the capabilities of Oakmont’s COPE and radio groups.

The program for the Forum is a video of a simulated 7.5 earthquake. This will be followed by a question and answer period. Residents can then circulate around the agency tables to pick up literature and ask any remaining questions they may have.
