TRI- CITY CERT MEMBERSHIP MEETING

for membership and the community

Thursday, October 5, 2017

6:30-9:00 P.M.

Gardena Valley Baptist Church

1630 W 158th St, Gardena 90247

A Look at the Recent Hurricanes, Storms and Earthquakes: Are We Prepared if a Disaster were to Happen Here?

With the recent devastating hurricanes and earthquakes, we are confronted with the state of our own Preparedness. Am I prepared if a big storm or earthquake were to happen here in my neighborhood? As CERT members and/or Good Samaritans, are we ready to respond to help our family, neighbor, co-worker and community? Do we have the skills, knowledge and supplies to survive and recover?

“Preparation through education is less costly than learning through tragedy.”
Max Mayfield, Director National Hurricane Center

Jose Hernandez, President, TRI-CITY CERT and CERT team members will teach preparedness skills and disaster sanitation followed by a table top exercise on responding to a BIG STORM occurring in our neighborhood. We will also practice disaster communications so DCS members from the Gardena and Hawthorne are encouraged to attend and bring their CS 100 radios.

So please come and invite your friends, family and neighborhood to this important presentation on Thursday, October 5 at 6:30 pm at Gardena Valley Baptist Church.

Remember the Boy Scout motto "BE PREPARED”

We will also take sign-ups for help in our upcoming CERT community outreaches, trainings, logistics and meetings. We need all of YOU to help TRI-CITY CERT to help prepare our local communities for a disaster whether natural or man made.

Refreshments will be served following the exercise.
