Avoid that guilty, nagging feeling that there is nothing you can do should a disaster occur in your neighborhood.
Many residents are concerned that in the event of major disaster, professional services may be overwhelmed or may not be able to get to us. The Del Mar, Solana Beach and Encinitas Fire Departments are once again offering a program to train residents as first responders until emergency help arrives. This free program, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), includes training in triage, basic first aid, basic firefighting, how to give emotional support in a crisis, and search and rescue techniques.
The next CERT training series starts Wednesday night, October 19th, at 6:00 PM.
