CERT Community Emergency Response Team

Living in kind of a remote spot, high in the Santa Cruz mountains my place is exceptionally vulnerable to all sorts of natural disasters, namely Fire and Earthquakes. Based on the encouragement of my neighbors I decided to take the US Government Citizen Corps CERT, Community Emergency Response Team training taught by Glen Owens at the Scotts Valley Fire department.

Though much longer then I expected, five days in the classroom plus field exercises I am glad I took this emergency response training. And its cool to be a CERT team member!
