On Friday morning, June 25, crews from the Woodland, Davis, UC Davis, Willow Oak, West Sacramento and Yocha Dehe Fire Departments flocked to Woodland Memorial Hospital to participate in the Emergency Victims Assistance Collaboration, an exercise scenario depicting a hospital fire and calling for a large-scale patient evacuation. Red Cross was activated to send Disaster Assistance Teams (DAT) to set up a Rehabilitation tent with water and food for the fire crews. Yolo County Red Cross called up Yolo County ARES to provide communications between the staging area and the Rehabilitation sites.
