The Santa Barbara Philipino Community take action and learn how to do "The Greatest Good for The
Greatest Number of People " during a disaster.
CERT members are trained to provide critical support to first responders, offer immediate assistance to
victims and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-
emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community.
7 Philipino Community Members participated in eight weeks of training which included segments on
Disaster Preparedness, Team Organization and Disaster Psychology, Medical Operations, Damage
Assessment, Disaster Simulation, Fire Suppression and Light Search and Rescue.
