For many Californians, a severe earthquake isn’t just a concern, but simply a matter of when.
And in the case of such a disaster, proper planning could prove to be the difference between life and death.
Thursday, at Solano Comunity College’s main campus, Solano County Health and Services employees conducted a simulation of a massive Bay Area earthquake when they executed a Commodity Point of Distribution (CPOD) exercise.
The simulation entailed Solano County Health and Services closing off a portion of the campus’ parking lot, where they distributed cases of water to the hundreds of students and faculty who passed through the area.
