Personal Emergency Preparedness

Earthquakes and other emergencies happen everywhere in the world.  They can be devastating.  Why doesn't anyone tell you what you should know?  We will!  How to communicate if the phones aren't working, what emergency supplies you "must" have and what are "nice" to have, how to put out a fire using a fire extinguisher, how to turn off natural gas.  You'll feel 100% better prepared when you're done!

Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment

What do you do when there is a medical emergency and you are the only one available to help?  In just one hour, you can learn the simple skills needed to identify life threatening conditions and address them before the ambulance arrives.  It's easy - and fun to practice!

Campus Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Campus Emergency Response Team has been taught across the country for over 20 years. Originally developed by the Los Angeles City Fire Department, CERT provides "every day people" with the skills to be able to help out after an emergency when professional first responders are overwhelmed and need our help.  Skills include disaster medicine, patient assessment, fire safety & extinguisher use, light search & rescue techniques and much more!  It's fun!  Help yourself, help your family, help your community.
