Community Meetings
Each of our Community meetings are open to all members of the community.  This includes those CERT-trained and those that may want to become CERT-trained in the future.

Each of our Community meetings are open to all members of the community.  This includes those CERT-trained and those that may want to become CERT-trained in the future.

As  you are aware, we needed to postpone our January meeting to February.
This time of the year, we are reminded of the Anniversary of the Northridge Earthquake (01/17/1994).  Many of us were here and survived.  Were we prepared or just lucky?

At our February meeting (2/20) we will outline the steps to begin planning for the next disaster.

Here are the key points:

  • Why Prepare – Types of Disasters, When a Disaster strikes it’s never late to start
  • Create a Plan – Do you stay or do you go? – Bug In/Bug Out?, Meeting locations?, Evacuation plan?, Communications plan???, Financial Plan?????, PACE
  • Build your Kit based on your plan(s) – what do you need?, where do you need it, how many kits do you need?
  • Test/Practice your plan
    • Does your plan work?
    • Does your kit work?
    • Does it need modifications/improvements?
  • Revise – based on your test/practice
  • Stay Informed
  1. Please BRING a Pen/Pencil to make notes
  2. You will write down topics AND what things are important to YOU (and your family)
  3. All of us will go around the room to share
