Information on all aspects of community, neighborhood and household disaster preparedness will be provided. The Disaster Council will also facilitate postal patron mailings to reinforce defensible space and disaster preparedness information and training. Quarterly Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) class sign ups will also be available at the Neighborhood meetings. CERT includes a 4-hour, hands-on training session on Fire Prevention and Suppression. Defensible space and Wildland/Urban Interface Fires are two of the main topics during this training.
