About this Event

Please sign up and attend our combined BAT/CERT/HAM drill on Saturday, January 11, 2020! This will be an OUTDOOR drill, and will run rain or shine. Please dress accordingly.

These drills are crucial in helping us be prepared, practice our skills, bond as a community, and understand where we need to add resources and training in order to be truly resilient in an emergency situation.

The drill will be followed by dessert. Here are the details:

  • Location: Neutra House & Los Altos Youth Center, Los Altos
  • Check-In Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Neutra House, 181 Hillview
  • Briefing at 1:00 p.m.
  • Team Assignments & Radio Training at 1:15 p.m.
  • Drill Starts: 1:30 p.m.
  • Drill Ends: When your team completes your assessment form and sends your report by radio. (no later than 2:30 p.m.)
  • Dessert & Debrief: 2:45 p.m. at Los Altos Youth Center

The debrief will start once everyone has their snacks. We anticipate being fully done with the debrief by 4:00 p.m.

We are also inviting members from the city (City Council and Police Department), County Fire, and the Town Crier, so please show up and make this event a big success.

Please come prepared. This means bring your vest and DSW badge if you have one, something to write on, and something to write with. If you are a CERT, you do not need to bring your entire backpack (although you are welcome to do so). BAT/CERT members that have FRS/GMRS radios can bring those along, too.

Other notes:

  • This is the same day the Earthquake Simulator is scheduled and one of the final weekends for the Our Community Prepares exhibit at the Los Altos History Museum!
  • There will be a special showing of "Quake Heroes" that you can attend at 11AM in Los Altos Youth Center that would allow you to still participate in our drill.
  • The Los Altos Hills County Fire District has also invited all of the Los Altos BAT Leaders, CERTs, and HAMs to their get together from 4:30-7:30pm at the Los Altos History Museum. There will be a short meeting on the upcoming LAH CERT 2020 calendar of drills and training activities and combined training opportunities with the LAH CERTS and City of Los Altos CERTS. Please register separately for this on Eventbrite by January 9th.
