We all know LA is prime for emergency situations happening in our sprawling metropolis: earthquakes and fires are inevitable, civil unrest is possible, a car taking down a power line is not unheard of. But what do we do about being prepared? Not much.
This fall is your opportunity to do something, to become the person you know you want to be in an emergency situation, to have the tools to help your own family members and your community get through an emergency. The LA Fire Department makes it easy for any of us to acquire the skills needed, through a seven week course that really gives you the hands-on solutions to take charge in a crisis. The course syllabus below lays out the program. People who have taken the course say it is eye-opening, extremely helpful, and a pretty good time.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) class will be offered at the Hollywood City Hall starting in October: 6501 Fountain Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90028.
Classes will be held on Oct. 16th, 23rd, 30th, Nov. 13th, 20th, and 27th. Classes will run from 6:30-9:30 pm. More info? Call 818-756-9674 and sign up for BATT 5.
