Lamorinda CERT has published a new policy for dealing with Unaccompanied Minors and Adults with Access and Functional Needs who are encountered following a disaster. This policy checklist guides the CERT member so that the subject (minor or AFN adult) is best cared for and the CERT member and the sponsoring agency are protected against litigation for possible claims of impropriety. Download the policy from the CERT FORMS section under the RESOURCES tab.
Lamorinda CERT is a community based disaster response team for the cities of Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda and the surrounding unincorporated areas in Contra Costa County, California. We train volunteer emergency responders and plan for emergency and disaster response including preparedness, search and rescue, small fire suppression and medical response.
