The City of Seal Beach, the Seal Beach Police Department, and the West County CERT team will host a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Disaster Exercise on Saturday, March 28 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Joint Forces Training Base—Los Alamitos – Building 244, 11200 Lexington Drive, Los Alamitos, CA 90720.
CERT members are residents of the community; they are volunteers from all walks of life. During major disasters, CERT members assist in their neighborhoods or workplaces before professional responders arrive. Upon request from local fire or police, CERT members may supplement emergency response agencies when police and fire departments are overwhelmed during a major disaster, such as an earthquake.
