New policy for dealing with Unaccompanied Minors post-disaster

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.

Overnight Fire Watch

Lamorinda CERT was called out to provide Fire Watch overnight to watch for flare-ups from the fire that burned behind Campolindo High School in Moraga yesterday. CERT teams were called out at 19:00 yesterday to provide 4 hour shifts from 20:00 until 08:00 this morning.
