An earthquake measuring 7.1 on the Richter scale hits the Puente Hills fault, causing a partial building collapse at Cal Poly Pomona with thirteen victims trapped beneath the rubble. Some victims are able to dig their way out of the caved in building with only minor wounds, while others appear to face life-threatening injuries. Student Health Services staff rush to the area to set up a medical treatment site and begin evaluating injuries as University Police and other emergency personnel arrive on scene to transport those with critical injuries to nearby hospitals. Fortunately, the earthquake isn't a real act by Mother Nature only a simulated situation staged by the university and local emergency personnel as part of the campus Emergency Management Plan to prepare for a real disaster.
