Hurricane Katrina, the Joplin tornado, and the San Francisco earthquake. All three of these disasters had emergency personnel overwhelmed and residents had to help themselves until additional resources arrived.
CERT training provides residents and community members with the knowledge of how to assist themselves and others during the initial aftermath of a disaster, how to prepare for a disaster, and identifying and reducing hazards prior to a disaster.
All community members are invited to attend a 20 hour CERT training course given by the Montebello Fire Department at Park Avenue Christian Church. To register for the training, call 323-721-5187 or email Lynn@ParkAvenueChristian.org.
