Given the Lab’s unique challenges as a scientific facility located in the midst of an urban environment, earthquake preparation requires extra planning and preparation. To help address potential fall-out from an earthquake, the Lab has three programs in place: a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT), and Damage Assessment Team (DAT), which ensures lab operations and systems can be assessed and recovered. There are also has six disaster containers (one in each zone) throughout the campus, which are filled with water, food, and medical supplies. More>
