SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Crews from agencies across San Diego and Riverside County are participating in a five-day emergency response training program.

Sunday, they completed a rescue disaster drill centered on a simulated 6.6 magnitude earthquake.

It was held at the Regional Public Safety Training Institute on North Harbor Drive.

Crews stabilized "damaged" buildings and worked to reach "victims" trapped inside collapsed buildings and confined spaces.

The training continues through Thursday with events scheduled on Mission Bay, at SeaWorld, and at San Diego State University.
