CERT Hybrid Training Calls Starting up again!
For those who are currently taking, or will be taking, the online CERT training, we invite you join us for our weekly unit discussions.

The goal of these zoom calls is to connect with our Program Manager, Jake Heflin, and to receive supplemental information regarding each unit topic. These calls are completely voluntary and meant to ENHANCE learning.

Details for each call are presented in the picture to the left.
Do you know who to call?

National Poison Prevention Week; March 21-17, 2021

When life happens, do you know you can call a poison center 24/7?

Prepare for an emergency by saving the Poison Control number 1-800-222-1222.

Prevent an emergency by taking steps to make your home safer.

Protect: call the number right away if you suspect a poisoning!

Tsunami Awareness Week; March 22-26, 2021

Long Beach has areas that ARE in the ZONE!

Take the time to visit or to learn about tsunamis.

It can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 15 hours for a tsunami to reach the shore.
