CERT Academy

Saratoga CERT Academy began Tuesday, May 8th. You can still encourage friends, family, and neighbors to sign up. Let them know that they can make-up the missed class at another Academy! Classes are generally 6pm to 9pm Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Community Center. IT IS NOT TOO LATE! If you are available to help during the CERT graduation on Saturday, May 26th, come and meet our new CERT members and lend a hand with their commencement.

Save the Date

Save the date of Thursday, September 6th from 9am to 12noon for a partial exercise (Yellow Command). Mark your calendars; more to come.

Safety Fair

Finally, we need some volunteers to help with the Sunday, May 20th Safety Fair at West Valley College. I estimate we need three people to work 11:30 to 2:30 (set-up and greet) and three people to work 2:30 to 5:30 (greet and clean-up). If we can get some help (big truck with a hitch and a good driver), we can move our new CERT trailer over and display it during the Fair! Simply e-mail Michael Taylor mtaylor@saratoga.ca.us to sign up for a shift. We really need more folks for the later shift, thanks.
