CERT to present ‘Are You Ready’


At 6:30 p.m. on April 18, the Encinitas Fire Department and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will present the one hour disaster preparedness program “Are You Ready” at the Encinitas Community and Senior Center, 1140 Oakcrest Drive.

The free program is tailored to address disasters that are likely to affect Encinitas. Detailed steps to take before a disaster strikes will be discussed with the goal of minimizing the effects on our homes and families. Materials will be provided that outline the supplies needed to support you and your family’s needs for up to 72 hours. Encinitas Fire Department endorsed Home Disaster Preparedness Starter Kits will be available at a reduced price during the training session.
