Over 120 volunteers are deployed throughout the city today to participate in a mock earthquake response exercise.
Folks are having a great time seeing just how the whole operation would work if the Red Cross of Southern Nevada would set up a response to a large scale event.
We have several vehicles and volunteers that have come to Southern Nevada from around the country so that we can make this exercise as realistice as possible. The trucks above are sent from our national fleets. The mobile kitchen comes to us from the Ventura Chapter and the Emergency Communications Response Vehicle has come from Phoenix.
