Emergency Preparedness Exercises are held twice a year in Vista Verde, with one exercise simulating a major wildland fire and the other a major earthquake. These exercises are an excellent opportunity to learn what to do in the case of a major disaster, and a great way to get to know your neighbors. Residents taking part in these exercises assemble at the homes of their Group leaders (see the Neighborhood Emergency Organization Chart to find your Group leader) at the beginning of the exercise and are given instructions there. These emergency response exercises are announced by emails on the community email group, and notifications on this website and the CERPP website.

Typical emergency exercise activities include:

  • Test Telephone Tree from your home
  • Meet at Vista Verde Command Center (184 Vista Verde)
  • Test SMC Alert smcalert.info
  • Test CERPP Radio Network
  • Test CERPP Telephone Hot Line 1-866-442-3777
  • Check CERPP Web site cerpp.org/fire
  • Test Reverse 911
  • Test FireDispatch.com
  • Check TV & Radio Stations
  • Meet at your Neighborhood Centers
  • Radio practice
  • Notify neighbors door to door

Each exercise typically ends with a debriefing at your Neighborhood Center, at which time any questions are answered and feedback is gathered to improve future exercises.
