Citywide Earthquake Response Practice April 24

CORE, or Communities of Oakland Respond to Emergencies, is holding its annual exercise on April 24, 2010 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. to give neighbors an opportunity to come together and practice responding to a disaster. The scenario for 2010 is based on a 7.0 magnitude quake on the Hayward Fault, centered in North Oakland.

If you are part of a HarriOak CORE group, or you'd like to take part in this exercise, please email harrioak@yahoo.com, or please respond in the comments. We'd like everyone who is interested to have a chance to participate.

You can find more information about the exercise on CORE's Web site.
