Upcoming CERT events
Newport Beach CERT volunteers,
We hope that you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer. The end of summer marks the beginning of the city's fall community preparedness outreach efforts. September is National Preparedness Month and is one of the busiest months for community preparedness. Listed below are some of the upcoming events and trainings for CERT volunteers.
Community Preparedness Committee
The Fire department is excited to announce the creation of a new Community Preparedness Committee. Lead by CERT Board members Marilyn Broughton and Evalie DuMars, the Community Preparedness Committee is for any CERT volunteer that is interested in assisting at any event, training or drill throughout the year. If you are interested in helping out at a community outreach event, assisting at CERT classes, or teaching/assisting at CPR classes then this is the committee for you. The committee is open to all Newport Beach CERT volunteers interested in participating in community outreach. Even if you only want to volunteer to assist at a few events each year, then this is the committee for you.
