Could you post this on the LVNA website and the Nextdoor group. I think it is so important for everyone who can take the CERT classes to do so.

Please pass the word to your friends. Bubba is one of the most popular CERT instructors. You won't be bored.
Note: Parking is available for free at the Adventist Church.
Parking for the class at the LAPD will be more challenging.
Do you live in the Hollywood Dell and will be in the class or have already trained but did not receive your helmet and vest? If so, please reply to this e-mail with your name and e-mail address.
Next CERT Community Meeting
We'll be meeting with Chief Castro who will give us the same class he gives his captains on crises management, where you're overwhelmed with a disaster and don't know what to do. More details to come. Please set aside March 19, 7pm for a fascinating evening.
Notes from our Most Recent CERT Meeting
We watched a documentary on the 2006 Station Night Club fire in New Jersey that killed 100 people. In case you missed the meeting, you can still watch the video at YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4xaWMKBlw4
Chief Elder stressed situational awareness, the concept that you must alway be aware of what's going on in your environment. In this video, you can see the cameraman edge over to the exit as he filmed the fire as it got worse - as people danced away. It's a sober reminder to be careful wherever you are.
Barely a month ago, there was a similar nightclub fire in Brazil that took over 200 lives. It was the same scenario where the band played, their pyrotechnics went out of control - as people danced, and many died. More details on YouTube
CERT Community Meeting
Remember to read the signs carefully before parking. We look forward to seeing you at FS 27, March 19, at 1327 Cole Ave, near the intersection of Cahuenga and Sunset Blvd. 7pm.
