CERTs from Santa Barbara County are invited to join us in Carpinteria for this fun, educational and engaging event! This drill is a great opportunity for CERT graduates to practice skills they've learned, challenge themselves to learn new skills and work alongside other dedicated CERTs.
During this drill, special emphasis will be placed on the following areas:
- Utilizing proper light search and rescue techniques.
- Achieving effective communication between teams and with outside fire agencies.
- Developing effective triage organization.
During this year's drill, we will be challening CERTs to "step out of the box" and try positions they may not have experienced before. If you have not led a team before, this is a great chance to give it a try!
We hope you can join us!
