Hi Battalion 9 CERT Members and Friends,
Things are pretty busy! Upcoming activities:
1) Thurs, Oct 13, 7 pm - CERT Community Meeting at Fire Station 59 (hosted by Batt 9)
2) Sat, Oct 15, 12-4 pm - Westwood Disaster Prep Fair, Westwood Public Library, 1246 Glendon Ave. We need your help for this...the more, the merrier! Let me know if you want to help out! Also, this will be the first public appearance of the CERT unit's new trailer! And we'll be doing some CERT skill demonstrations. And there will be fire extinguisher simulators (they work with infrared sensors). And we'll have not just a LAFD vehicle and LAPD mobile command post, but we'll also have the BIG SHAKER earthquake simulator...all that and more. A flier is attached. please share this news widely with all of your own networks. There's also an event page on Facebook (look up "Weswtood Neighborhood Disaster Prep Fair").
3) Thurs, Oct 20, the ShakeOut. www.shakeout.org. If you are looking for a local event to be a part of, then come to UCLA Bruin Plaza that day. Tentative time we'll be there is 10-1, +/-.
4) There are TWO local CERT classes starting the night of Oct 20! One is at UCLA in the residence halls (6-9 pm), and the other is at Fire Station 59 (6:30 pm). Full details can be found on the CERT website. I do not yet have a flier for these classes, but you can still go ahead and share the news! http://www.cert-la.com/index.shtml
