What's Up in Stallion Springs?
The Stallion Springs CERT team held its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 6. Sally Lawrence lead a discussion and training seminar on Unit 1 of the CERT Training Manual. For those of you that have not yet completed your initial CERTification, this will count toward your completion as long as you have attended full class sessions for at least 5 other units. This is also a great way to re-CERTify without having to attend the full class. It also serves as a good introduction to others who may be interested in taking the CERT Basic Training but wanted an overview first. Additional units will be covered at future meetings. Be sure to invite all your friends and neighbors in the greater Tehachapi area. You can contact CERT at (661) 412-CERT. The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday Feb. 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Stallion Springd CSD building.
The CERT team will be distributing the Names & Numbers Phone Books over the next few weeks. Watch for yours. Stallion Springs Neighborhood Watch
