Every year, the Santa Barbara County CERT Collaborative comes together to put on a large exercise for volunteers to practice their skills. Goleta is the lead agency for this year’s event and we need your help!
October 26th, 2019
9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
27 S La Patera Lane, Goleta
Lunch is provided!
There are two ways to become involved with this drill, as a CERT Player or a Volunteer Victim. CERT Players must be graduates of the CERT Basic Course. Anyone is welcome to be a Volunteer Victim and will pretend to be a person affected by a disaster. When registering, please select the correct "ticket".
CERT Players - Arrive at 9am. If you are a graduate from any CERT program within Santa Barbara County, you are welcome to register as a Player. 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 9am. 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 - they may need to be thrown out afterwards. Service hours are available to all volunteer victims that need them.
