The next Los Altos CERT class will be starting on September 18. This is a series of 3 hour classes and a Saturday “graduation exercise” that covers the finer details of CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams). Learn how to handle a fire extinguisher, provide minor first and and do light search and rescue. This class is offered twice a year, so the next installment will be in the spring. CERT skills are very useful after a major disaster such as an earthquake that does extensive damage in your neighborhood. You can sign up by clicking on the “Sign Up for a CERT Class” link that is in the right-hand column on this page. Price of the class is $95 and provides you with a CERT backpack loaded with personal protection equipment (PPE). Sign up today and join us at this informative and very useful training class.
