Dancing on the Ring of Fire

Frank Cox

Marin Sheriff’s Office, 1600 Los Gamos Drive #200, Lobby A, San Rafael CA 94903

A Workshop for Trauma Response Team Members:

Survivors to help more survivors- and to encourage all members to be prepared both personally and professionally

Marin County is sandwiched between the two most dangerous Earthquake Faults in America – the San Andreas to the West, and the Hayward / Calaveras complex to the East. We are due at any time for a major quake that will change the Bay Area for generations to come. When The Big One comes, experts anticipate thousands of deaths and injuries, tens of thousands of homes and businesses lost, and potentially hundreds of billions of dollars of damage.

The event will include a tour of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and lessons from experienced panelists. Our keynote speaker: Frank Cox, Auxiliary to County Office of Emergency Services and Emergency Operation Center staff member, has staffed major fires (Vision / Mendocino), major floods, the 2011 Japan Tsunami, taught dozens of classes and more.

Marin CAMFT is seeking new members to join our Trauma Response Team For information contact Bill Barton, PhD LMFT at or 415 497 0048.

Time: Check-in is at 8:00 am and the Workshop will go from 8:30-Noon. We will start promptly at 8:30, so allow time for coffee and confusion!

Directions: Take Highway 101 to Lucas Valley Rd, go west, turn left on Los Gamos Road, pass 1600 Los Gamos Road and turn LEFT.  Drive about 100 yards, and turn RIGHT at the 1600 Los Gamos Road sign.  This will take you to the BACK of the buildings. Turn RIGHT again, (past the sheriff’s staff parking gate) travel 50 yards south until the Parking area gets wide with multiple lanes to park. Enter through the door labeled A, take the elevator to the 2nd floor, and enter the Sheriff’s office. The Sheriff’s Briefing room is past the public counter space.


Continuing Education Goal: Marin CAMFT is committed to offering continuing education courses to train LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and LEPs to treat any client in an ethically and clinically sound manner based upon current accepted standards of practice. Course completion certificates will be awarded at the conclusion of the training and upon participant’s submission of his or her completed evaluation. 

    Accommodation for Special Needs: The special needs of persons with disabilities will be accommodated. The Program Committee will endeavor to assure that continuing education program materials, content and venue selections will meet the special needs of the disabled and that reasonable accommodation will be made.
