The Morgan Hill and Gilroy Community Emergency Response Teams are hosting a free 8 session CERT Basic Training Course starting June 6 in Morgan Hill. I'll be attending and if anyone else is interested they can sign up at http://www.mhcert.com/register/ It looks pretty decent for being a free course and it's being held in the Morgan Hill PD Emergency Operations Center :cool:

If any one is interested in learning more about CERTs have a look at http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/

Thats cool you guys are attached to a PD and not a FD. The certs attached to a PD tend to get activated more often.
