Safety

Los Gatos CERT Event

Wildfire Evacuation Route in Los Gatos The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program is a nationwide effort at preparing individuals and communities to be better prepared in disasters. In some areas, the focus may be more on terrorist threats, and in others, natural hazards such as earthquakes, fire, tornadoes, tsunamis, flooding etc. Los Gatos and Monte Sereno have received funding and CERT has been getting rolled out here. Last night in my area, Belwood (one of 13 CERT communities), there was a meeting about safety generally and CERT in particular, and I believe these meetings are happening or will happen in the various CERT areas.

On July 13, there will be a CERT event at the Los Gatos Civic Center from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.,for a CERT Fire extinguisher training, unveiling of the new Civic Center Neighborhood Incident Command Post (NICP) and a B.B.Q. All are welcome! You can register for this event on the Eventbrite page.

Learn more about CERT – wonderful video produced by FEMA. The opening segment has to do with the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989.
