The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact the area and trains them in basic disaster response skills.  Some of these disaster response skills include fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.  CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responsers can rely on during disaster situations. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.

Volunteers sought for Bike Valet at Local Events


The Los Gatos Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission is supporting free Bike Valet parking at local events, building on the success of the Red, White and Blue block party, where we parked over 100 bikes, so we are ready with plenty of space and racks. Volunteering to park bikes is a ton of fun! You can sign up with some friends and make a date of it and high school students can even receive community service hours. Cyclists arriving at the event are always happy to see you and fun to talk to. Typically volunteers are needed for 2-hour shifts with each shift led by an experienced commissioner. If you would like to help out, please contact Maria Ristow, ristows@comcast.net to become a part of this amazing volunteer team. Help us take more cars off the road and make it easy for people to bike downtown.
