|As we have learned from past events, we need to be self sufficient for at least 72 hours after a disaster strikes. The trainings provided by the North County Fire Authority are designed to provide vital information so that you can begin to be better prepared. These trainings are provided in the following formats:Basic Emergency Preparedness is a 30 minute presentation that is geared towards Homeowners Associations, PTA’s and Service Club meetings. It is designed to give citizens a basic understanding of the threats we face, and the steps to take to prepare for a large scale disaster. To schedule a presentation, contact Matt Lucett at (650) 991-8139 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Individual and Family Preparedness is a 2-hour presentation that will provide citizens information on what they should do before, during and after a disaster strikes. Topics presented include developing a family disaster plan, building an emergency supply kit, and making your home disaster resistant. To schedule a class please contact Matt Lucett at (650) 991-8139 or by email at email@example.com.Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program, is a 20-hour long training course that educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and practical exercises, citizens trained as CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace after a disaster occurs while waiting for the arrival of professional responders. CERT members are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects and education in their community. The next CERT Class Series is scheduled for Thursday, August 9th from 6:30pm-9:00pm and will continue weekly until Thursday, September 27th.
