West County CERT helped to staff three different 2018 National Night Out events and had a good time doing it. Of course, having a good time while getting the job done (whatever that job entails) is one of the best parts of being a part of West Orange County CERT.
The La Palma event was on Saturday (8/4) to coincide with the city’s Civic Expo that includes a concert in the park, picnics and just an all around good time for residents. The turn out was great and the CERT booth was busy answering questions and signing people up for the free CERT Academy course that is typically offered twice a year (more details here). The evening was cool and relaxing. Thanks La Palma for inviting us to be a part of this fun event.
The Westminster 2018 National Night Out event was full of fun activities, food, kids’ games, music and a K-9 demonstration by Officer Hartman and Pako. The evening was quite warm and contributed to the smaller than normal crowds. Overall it was a good event and the Team was able to answer many community questions about CERT.
The NNO in Seal Beach combined the communities of Seal Beach, Los Alamitos, Rossmoor, and Cypress and was well attended with more community and vendor booths than in any past year. The each of the cities were represented by their police departments, and there were many other city and county agencies represented and ready to answer questions from the public.
