Youth Staff from Puente completed the last sessions of the Community Emergency Response Team. The training was provided by La Hondra Brigade volunteers.
The goal of this train is to educate people about disaster preparedness and train on basic disaster response skills to use while professional responders are not available to provide immediate help.
