Supporting community training for disaster
I think this is a great idea.
We have heard throughout the community outreach meetings that there is a concern if there is a disaster of some type, that there will be Rancho Murieta residents that will need assistance, both before, during and after the disaster. That assistance may come in many forms such as evacuation assistance, transportation, food, shelter, medical supplies or treatment.
It is essential that people understand that during the first few hours of a disaster or emergency, First Responders will be busy with mitigating the crisis, providing rescues and medical aid in a triage protocol system. Those with minor injuries will need assistance; however, First Responders will be dealing with the most severe injuries first. A network of trained volunteers can fill in the gaps and provide the support and resources that many will need.
