It was just more than 6 months ago when the east coast quake shook our area. Today, Towson University is giving their students a taste of the action again for their own benefit.
Organizers are preparing for Operation Stat. Hundreds of Towson University student volunteers will participate in an exercise to educate people on what to do in an earthquake.
Last August when the earthquake hit many people ran outside and that is the wrong thing to do.
Today at 1pm when the event kicks off we'll learn the right thing to do.
Students can learn about emergency preparedness-- emergency care during a disaster and partnering with the community.
They will have the works with a Humvee ambulance, stretchers, cots, mock victims and fake blood -- all to set the scene.
A number of agencies will participate in the event.
Operation Stat kicks off Friday at 9am to 1pm here at Towson University.
