There was blood, injuries, and lots and lots of people needing medical attention. The 3rd annual Santa Barbara County CERT drill provided real world disaster preparedness training for citizens from throughout the Central Coast. Julie Jeakle, Carpinteria Emergency Services Coordinator, said "It's important to prepare. The fact is we never know when a disaster will happen, so it's important to be ready if it ever does."
