CERT Participants - Arrive at 9:00 a.m. You must be a CERT Basic Course graduate to participate in this drill (graduated with a CERT vest and backpack). You will be testing your skills as if this was a real-life emergency. Bring all CERT gear to the drill (helmet, vest, backpack, gloves, etc.). We will provide some equipment, but what you have is what you will use.
Volunteer Victims - Arrive at 9:00 a.m. You do NOT have to be a CERT graduate to be a volunteer victim. You will be playing the role of a victim of a disaster and will be given an "identity" to act out. The CERT participants will be rescuing you. Wear comfortable clothes that you do not care about (you might want to throw them out afterwards). Service hours are available to all volunteer victims that need them.
Again you must RSVP by October 20 at CERTexercise2019.Eventbrite.com in order to participate.
The City of Goleta holds CERT trainings periodically and due to popularity these trainings fill up fast.
