Description: Emergency preparedness activities of one Berkeley-Oakland Hills neighborhood at the wildland/urban interface include establishing clusters that reduce fire hazards and fuel loads, setting aside emergency supplies, and identifying evacuation routes; taking emergency preparedness courses from the Offices of Emergency Services of Berkeley and Oakland (the CERT and CORE programs); and setting up and exercising a citizen-band radio network. With the cooperation of the Berkeley and Oakland fire and police departments, on-foot evacuation and earthquake drills have been held. Problems discovered relate to liability, absentee ownership of lots, and response time of the official emergency radio system.
