Join us for our first San Rafael CERT Meeting/Training of 2020! The steering committee has put together a great agenda!

San Rafael CERT Members! Join us for the first quarterly meeting of 2020! Your steering committee has been hard at work, meeting monthly, to help make San Rafael more prepared. The committee has set goals for the new year, that include quarterly opportunities to get together for training, dills, and updates. Our first meeting will help lay the ground work for additional meetings and drills- please join us for a fun and interactive evening on March 4th! We will also have prizes and snacks!

Who should attend? All San Rafael residents trained to be CERTs and those that may be CERT curious. If you need to update your ID and/or DSW paperwork we can take care of that on the 4th.
