Our Board Member, Gregg Aniolek, wears many hats and one of them that he wears with great passion is his CERT hat. CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is a fantastic training program that covers basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. CERT members can go on to participate in more advanced trainings and refreshers and participate in "call outs" to assist LAFD as needed. More information can be found at www.cert-la.com.
Gregg recently participated in the CERT activities at the Creek Fire, near Hansen Dam, and then at the Skirball Fire. CERT members like our Gregg are valuable assets for LAFD.
CERT training are conducted year round and a series is anticipated to take place in Westchester later in 2018. Stay tuned for more information.
