For the past several months community members from throughout the District have been busy organizing preparedness teams for their respective communities. These teams consist of local citizens who are driven by the desire to be prepared in the event of a major disaster. They've come together in the spirit of neighbors committed to helping neighbors. Working with the Fire District, these community groups have participated in the training needed to form Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT).

On June 3rd, this training culminated into a large scale training exercise where multiple teams came together to practice their skills in a simulated earthquake scenario. Use the link below to access a great article by the Peninsula Daily news.
