Employees and visitors to Sunnylands Center & Gardens in Rancho Mirage will take part in the drill with employees and visitors being joined by College of the Desert geology students, who will provide information about earthquakes. Around 45 juniors from Palm Desert High School’s Health Academy will also take part in a mock disaster and medical triage drill.
