    The Lamorinda Community Emergency Response Team or CERT, is now accepting enrollment for their Winter class series. The CERT program offers valuable insight into the first few critical hours following an emergency related event and how individuals can become empowered to better prepare to sustain themselves, their families and their communities.
    Classes will be held once a week on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Orinda Library beginning on January 12 and running until March 9. The CERT classes teach disaster preparedness, radio communications, basic first aid, light search and rescue and fire suppression among other critical skills. If a disaster strikes, residents might be on their own for hours or days and the basic skills taught in CERT can help keep people and neighborhoods safe until help arrives. Given the devastation wildfires and earthquakes can cause, CERT is a good way to help prepare for when disaster strikes.
