It should be a legal requirement to be prepared...why not?
How many of us will be ready when a [natural] disaster strikes? How many lives could be spared if you and I were trained to respond to an emergency? Couldn't we put our creative minds together to contribute to the successes of the emergency response team within our local areas?
The CERT LA website (linked below) posts county-wide training resources that are open to the public. Unfortunately, the site looks a little out-of-date. The lack of a design update is proof that this program is a necessary tool put on the back burner – out of "site" out of mind.
I want to encourage us to be ready. Not: panic but prepare for disaster and emergency response...I'll be signing up for a class soon!
Thank you for reading and responding with action.
