Puente’s Youth Staff and volunteers are currently receiving the CERT Training by La Honda Fire Brigade staff.
CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team and the training is to provide community members, the necessary skills to help in case of a disaster when professional emergency services are not enough to provide care for all or while they arrive.
22 local young boys and girls will complete four sessions of training and one drill.
This is Puente’s effort to have more local community members ready to help in the case of a disaster. In this case, all participants are bilingual (Spanish/English).
We deeply appreciate the support of La Honda Fire Brigade..
