The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is one of the leaders of a new program called “Build Resilience LA County”. Explained in more detail in the attached PDF, the program is available to neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles County with the help of local city governments. Members of the CCNA emergency preparedness subcommittee have secured this no-cost 5-part class for our neighborhood. The course can be best described as the CERT training program without the hard hats and equipment!
It will be taught by Professor Rachael Long from Loma Linda University; with help from County Public Health Nurse Helen Obih, RN who is in charge of the County Program; and Christine Para from Culver City Fire Department. The course is designed so that we can take the materials from each section and distribute them to those that miss a session and want the material.
The classes will take place on 5 consecutive Monday evenings at 7pm starting on Monday, March 30th, and continuing each Monday evening through the end of April. (March 30, April 6, 13, 20, 27). The classes will be held at Marycrest Manor.
What: Build Resilience LA County 5-part Course
