READYgerstlepark Drill May 2017

On Saturday May 20th in Gerstle Park near downtown  San Rafael, we held our seasonal emergency preparedness drill.  At 8:45 am Dave Mariottini initiated a radio check with local volunteers (including the General Manager of the Panama Hotel.) Fifteen minutes later, we gathered at the Gerstle Park playground for an informative hour demonstration of “hands-only CPR” with Sandy Augustus, RN in the Marin General Cardiac Cath Lab. Sandy answered questions about the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, and the care of the patient. We were joined by three of San Rafael Fire Department’s finest, all EMT trained.  Our next event will be a summer tour of Marin County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services where Sandy’s husband Dave is the Field Services Commander. Stay tuned for the date of this tour! Fore more information about Gerstle Park’s emergency readiness program, contact Amy Likover at
