Del Mar and Solana Beach residents and employees eligible for free disaster training

Firestorm 2007 and numerous recent earthquakes are a wake-up call for all of us. Del Mar, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and Solana Beach residents and employees are invited to participate in free Community Emergency Response Team training to become disaster service volunteers. CERT training is designed to prepare you to help yourself, your family and your neighbors in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by using CERT training to save lives and protect property.

CERT volunteers learn to extinguish small fires, turn off natural gas to damaged homes, perform light search and rescue, and render basic medical treatment. Trained volunteers can also assist in non-hazardous functions such as shelter support, crowd control and evacuation.
The next CERT Training begins May 3 at 6 p.m. at the Solana Beach Fire Station. For more information and to sign-up, please contact Lorn Cannon, Solana Beach Fire Department, 858-720-4412 or Patrick O’Neil, Del Mar Fire Department at 858-755-1522.
