Safety, Life Saving Courses Coming To Glendora

The Los Angeles County Fire Department is encouraging the public to enroll in upcoming emergency and disaster training courses starting next month.

The Community Emergency Response Team courses will occur every Tuesday evening, starting February 10 and last until March 31, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Bidwell Forum of the Glendora Public Library.

C.E.R.T. courses are free of charge to the public.

Organizers tout the necessity for the public to become involved in disaster preparedness in the event that emergency responders may not be able to reach people in need of help in a timely manner, especially in isolated neighborhoods.

C.E.R.T. courses provide basic training in safety and life saving skills.

To enroll, call Los Angeles County Fire Department representative Alicia Mejia at (626) 732-3531 or at amejia@fire.lacounty.gov.

Space is limited. Students must complete all hours of the course to receive a certificate of completion.

All students must be at least 18 years old, or at least 16 years old if accompanied by a parent.

The deadline to enroll is Jan. 30.
