Other than the two overdoses, people at the camp have been well, said Carolyn, a first aid volunteer. She said that all volunteers have some sort of medical training, but their counter provides only the most basic health assistance.
"The clean up will improve the health and sanitary conditions at the camp, as medical workers will have more transparency to what's going on inside the residents' dwellings," she said.
Meanwhile, other residents of had doubts about the motivation of camp inspections.
"The deadline for fire proofing the camp is just another one of the city's tricks to get rid of the camp's people without causing a major public uproar," said Occupy activist Raven Ferrera.
She said that the tent city will likely become a permanent camp, as residents will be left alone after complying with fire by laws.
