Semi-Annual NRG Time Change Drill - November 6, 2022

NRG_OK_HELP_Drill_01

On Sunday, November 6th at 10am, Neighborhood Response Groups across Marin County will take part in the semi-annual OK/HELP drill. This exercise helps practice how your neighborhood would react after a disaster that doesn't require evacuation.

Neighborhood Response Group Block Captains will walk their street or floor of their apartment building, keeping track of which households displayed their signs.

Some communities conduct sophisticated exercises, complete with simulated injuries, and practice two-way radio
communication, while others use the opportunity to gather with their fellow Block Captains, walk the street and engage with neighbors.

If you don't have an OK/HELP sign already, you can download and print one here. Please reach out to nrg@smfd.org, if you need more assistance or have photos to share from your drill.

For the Block Captains out there wondering how to participate this year, continue reading for ideas on how your Neighborhood Response Group can get involved. If you're still looking for a co-captain or haven't quite started, you can still download and print the sign and practice. Building muscle memory now will help when you respond to a real life disaster.
