Disaster Drill at Galleria at Tyler

Riverside, Ca-  On Wednesday, April 27, 2005, the City of Riverside, in conjunction with the Western Riverside Emergency Council (WREC), Galleria at Tyler, and the Moreno Valley Mall, will be holding a disaster drill at Galleria at Tyler. The disaster drill is scheduled to begin at 2:00 AM and end at 9:00 AM.

Organizers are seeking citizen volunteers to serve as “victims,” so emergency services, hospitals, and shopping malls can gain valuable experience in utilizing emergency techniques and procedures. Volunteers will be made-up to simulate injuries that could occur in a real incident. Volunteers will be placed at both malls, and others will be transported via bus to any one of nine hospitals in the area. If you are interested in participating in the disaster drill please call the Riverside Emergency Operation Center at (951) 826-5550.
