Pleasant Hill CERT

By Jim Bonato

 

The next class for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training for Pleasant Hill residents begins Tuesday evening, September 13. The training will be held alternatively at two locations – initially at the Pleasant Hill Police Department and, thereafter, alternating at the large community room at City Hall. Classes are 6-9:30pm for six Tuesday evenings and emphasize preparedness, first aid, small fire suppression, light search and rescue, disaster psychology, and supplies to have on hand.

 

Most importantly, the training guides individuals to prepare themselves, their homes, and their families for the effects of a major earthquake and how to safely and effectively deal with its aftermath.  Following a major disaster, our police and fire departments will likely not be able to respond to all calls for help immediately as their efforts will be focused in areas that have been more severely impacted.  In communities impacted by disasters, it is “neighbors helping neighbors” that we rely upon to “pull us through.”  THAT is what CERT is all about.

 

We have trained over 500 local residents already.  Do you know if you have CERT trained neighbors?  If not, how about taking the first step and join us for some great training that will give you the confidence to react safely and effectively, not just for earthquakes, but for those other emergencies that may enter your life.  Residents aged 14 and older are encouraged to sign up at www.pleasanthillcert.org.  Join a dedicated group of local residents who truly are dedicated to helping our neighbors and our community.  Contact Jim Bonato at 938-5433 for additional information.
