Oakmont conducts emergency drill



Volunteers at the Oakmont Emergency Operations Center
Volunteers at the Oakmont Emergency Operations Center (L to R): John Felton (incident commander), Dr. Jim Knapp (Ham radio operator), Claudette Brero-Gow (scribe), Kay Oppenheimer (public information officer) during the Oct. 18 drill.

On Oct. 18, the Oakmont Emergency Preparedness Committee (OEPC) conducted a simulated emergency drill. The scenario for the drill was a 7.0 earthquake on the Rogers Creek Fault, which passes directly through Santa Rosa. Oakmont has over 200 COPE teams, neighborhood groups organized to assist each other in the event of an emergency.

Oakmont has a radio backup system of volunteers which can operate when emergency 911 and phone systems are interrupted.

With the aging of some of the Oakmont volunteers, OEPC is in dire need of additional COPE leaders and radio operators. If your neighborhood does not have an active COPE group, now is the time to volunteer and get organized. The Ham radio operators require an FCC license. However, Zone Communicators use radios, which do not require one. If you are interested in volunteering for any emergency response position, please contact Pat Barclay at 570-7500, or email him at OakmontERT@gmail.com. This is an opportunity to help your neighbors and be prepared for the next emergency.
