If you can participate, we would ask if you could please respond to this Eventbrite RSVP link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hamann-park-cert-annual-disaster-simulation-drill-training-tickets-60791432812
This will insure that the Hamann Park CERT leadership knows exactly how many Saratoga CERT members will be participating in the exercise.
This will be a great learning experience for all exercise attendees. Campbell CERT is widely known throughout the Santa Clara Valley as having one of the most knowledgeable, well-organized, and professional CERT teams.
