Still Interested in Attending?
We still have some grant funds available for CERT volunteers who wish to attend the State CERT Conference next weekend March 1-3. I need to know immediately (No later than Friday, February 22 by 15:00 HRS) if you are interested. You must attend the full weekend of the conference in order to utilize the grant funds, but you are always welcome to sign up on your own.
Call (714) 765-3804 or (714) 765-6955 to confirm your interest.

| Hands Only CPR Leader Training|
Learn to teach Hands Only CPR
Stay after the April 13, 2013 CERT and RACES quarterly meeting for an hour long training to become a Hands Only CPR Leader. This class will not certify you in CPR, nor will it allow you to teach full CPR (compressions and breaths), but you can help the community by offering Hands Only CPR as a trained leader.
I'm hoping that we can pick some days in the future where we can offer this to the community at team site meetings or community booths. Please sign up if you are interested.
