Welcome to 2018!

Are you prepared to:

Survive on your own for 5 days?

Help those you encounter?

Take charge of your situation and lead others?

During an emergency normal communications will be impaired at best.  Radio communications are an important option when phones won’t work.

On Wednesday, February 28th, we will join forces with our friends in the ACS (Auxiliary Communications Service) unit of the LAFD.  We will be taught how to use of a radio, how and what to say during an emergency

This is a ‘Community meeting’ so all community members are welcome to attend.  For those who are not yet in CERT, you are welcome to attend the Radio lecture and participate with the CERT members during the skills portion.  We have many basic CERT classes starting in the Valley this year, so there are many opportunities to learn CERT skills.

What to bring:  If  you are a CERT member, you should bring your PPE’s (Personal Protective Equipment such as leather gloves, CERT Helmet, N95 face mask, googles.  As there may be a ‘blackout’ simulation, bring something to correct that issue! If you have one (and you should), please bring an FRS (Family Radio Service) radio (and one more to share if you have it).

If you are not yet a CERT member, please bring a notepad, take notes and ask questions.  If  you wish to sign up to find out more about CERT, we will guide you through the process.

Where:  LAFD Fire Station 87

We will have a guest speaker from ACS, so please try to be on time.

Please follow the ‘orange line’ on this map once you have parked your car.  BE SAFE as you will be crossing the ‘active’ driveways of the Fire Station.

You cannot park on the Fire Station property, but can use the ‘Shopping area’ just north or find parking just on the street.  There are two Handicapped Parking spots in front of the Fire Station if needed.  Walk along the right side the Fire station and find the ‘rail fence’ separating the building from the LONG driveway.  Walk along the sidewalk (NOT IN THE DRIVEWAY) and take the first LEFT.  Enter inside the building, IMMEDIATELY TO THE RIGHT to the Community Room.
