Team Sites
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Get to know your neighbors by taking a CERT class, or becoming an Amateur Radio operator and volunteering with the Anaheim CERT and RACES programs. 
During disasters our CERT and RACES volunteers have predesignated neighborhood meeting location and we are continually looking for community leaders who are interested in starting a team site in their neighborhood.

Map of Team Locations

During earthquakes of a 6.0 magnitude or greater, volunteers are authorized to immediately report to their neighborhood site, take inventory of the damage, help their neighbors and report their needs to the Fire Department.  During other events, teams may be activated by the Fire Department to assist their neighbors and community. 

Come out and volunteer and meet the leaders at these sites!
