Riverside County will participate next week in a hazardous-material response drill along with numerous state and federal agencies. The drill provides practice for teams responding after a substance that is a potential bio-hazard is detected in multiple locations.

The media should expect to receive reports from members of the public who might be concerned if they see participating teams wearing protective gear in public, or activities at locations where participants are dispensing mock medications. Media wishing to cover the event should contact Jose Arballo Jr. at 951-358-5599. This notice is being sent out for planning purposes and as a public notification.

The drill, from Monday through next Friday (Nov. 16-20), will include the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the California Emergency Services Medical Authority (EMSA), the county Department of Public Health, Emergency Management Department, the Riverside County Sheriff and CalFire.
