Gas Pipeline Safety and Emergency Preparedness

 We will have a guest speaker address gas pipelines that run under our streets and neighborhoods, how to exercise safety when doing any type of excavation, and how pipeline companies prepare and respond to gas pipeline emergencies. As CERT members, we need to be aware of the potential for a pipeline emergency with construction on our streets, earthquakes. The speaker presentation and table top exercise will benefit community members as well.


A CERT table top exercise that implements logistics, operations and disaster radio communications will follow. Disaster communication service members from Gardena and Hawthorne are encouraged to attend and bring their CS 100 radios. 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.

 

 Parking: Enter the Hawthorne Center’s rear driveway from Prairie Ave, just North of Hawthorne Memorial Park and just South of Costco. Drive towards the center of the building and park there. Two double doors in the back of the Memorial Center are the entry to the Polaris Room Senior Center.   

 For more info, you may contact either Cindy Matsuda, Vice President at [email protected] or call her at (310) 528-8730 OR Jose Hernandez, President at [email protected]
