Event description
The Annual Countywide CERT Exercise will be hosted in Goleta this year. This year's scenario will be a train derailment.

About this Event

Join CERT volunteers from across the County and practice your emergency response skills. The drill will be held at 27 S La Patera, close to the Goleta Amtrak station.

There are two ways to become involved with this drill, as a CERT participant or a volunteer victim. Please choose the appropriate "ticket" when signing up for this event.

CERT Participants - Arrive at 9:00am. You must be a CERT Basic Course graduate to participate in this drill (graduated with a CERT vest and backpack). You will be testing your skills as if this was a real-life emergency. Bring all CERT gear to the drill (helmet, vest, backpack, gloves, etc.). We will provide some equipment, but what you have is what you will use.

Volunteer Victims - Arrive at 9:00am. You do NOT have to be a CERT graduate to be a Volunteer Victim. You will be playing the role of a victim of a disaster and will be given an "identity" to act out. The CERT participants will be rescuing you. Wear comfortable clothes that you do not care about - they may need to be thrown out afterwards. Service hours are available to all volunteer victims that need them.

The drill will complete at 12:00pm. Lunch will be provided for those who stay for the debrief following the drill. Debrief will end at 1:30pm.

More details will be posted here as they become available.
