La Palma played host to the West CERT meeting in August and as usual, the City was terrific.
After catching up with Team Members and sampling from a delicious set of food items, we had a terrific Team meeting on the evening pf August 8th.
After being welcomed by the City of La Palma Police Chief Terry Kim and Chet Corbin, we were briefed with an enlightening presentation about the Orange County Intelligence Assessment Center or OCIAC by Detective Josh Goldmark. Orange County has one of the 79 recognized “Fusion Centers” in the United States and we were fortunate to have Josh share a bit about what these centers do and how we can help them to keep us safe. You can find more information about OCIAC here
Following the presentation, Loree Erpelding presented thank you letters to those Team members who assisted at the Cypress Community Festival and gave a special “thank you” to Jeanette Vella for all she has done and continues to do as Admin Lead for the Team.
Watch your email for the upcoming CERT Academy’s Availability Sheet. We will need help both weekends.
And a big thank you to the City of La Palma for hosting us this month.
