Events

The Lamorinda communities hold many civic events every year. Most of these events have need of volunteers. Sometimes the volunteers staff a booth; sometimes they provide traffic or parking control. Whatever the need, the organizers turn to local civic groups for help. CERT is one of the groups that are increasingly being asked to help. With our training and our numbers we are in a position to help and to spread the word about CERT.
