Community Emergency Response Team
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will meet to talk about holiday safety on Oct. 27 from 10-10:45 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 9. This meeting will focus on how residents can keep themselves and their homes, cars and identities safe during the holiday season.
After the general meeting, the club will elect club officers. CERT members Debbie Campbell and Renee Monroy volunteered at the CERT table at the annual expo.
Residents learned about a CERT special project, called “Know your Neighbor.” CERT members learned from the Seal Beach Fire captain that one of the most important things to know in a disaster is who lives in the building. For example, in the event of an earthquake, CERT wants to check each unit to see if the resident inside is injured or safe. To help residents to know the names of their close neighbors, CERT provided a handout so residents can easily jot down the names of neighbors.
CERT classes are held on the fourth Friday of the month.
