From the American Red Cross of Northeastern California:

In preparation for a busy fire season, the Northeastern California and Northern Nevada chapters of the American Red Cross will conduct a training exercise in Susanville on Wednesday, May 14. This exercise will give Red Cross volunteers a chance to practice establishing an evacuation shelter and practice dealing with a number of common scenarios that frequently occur in shelters. 

Approximately 35 members of the community have signed up to be 'mock clients' for the day, these community members will go through the shelter registration process and will be assisting by acting out various scenarios.

The mock shelter will be at Lassen County Fairgrounds, 195 Russell Ave, Susanville.  The exercise will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
