Were planning a CERT drill at Budd Weiner Park on Saturday, Feb 27th at 10am.

Weve begun preliminary advertisement of the drill https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cert-medical-triage-coaching-drill-registration-20723029138 and Ive been working on gathering resources for the drill even prior to our first planning meeting.

The plan for the drill is to set up several stages of victims in the park and have a working EMT or paramedic at each stage to coach participants through the triage process.

Well be inviting the Monterey Hills CERT class from last year, the Hermon class going on right now, and hopefully most of the 9 other classes going on citywide. 

Monterey Hills is located within the City and County of Los Angeles. It is bordered by South Pasadena to the north, El Sereno to the South, and Highland Park to the West. It is located east of the 110 freeway and is 15 minutes from Downtown Los Angeles or Old Town Pasadena. The Monterey Hills Federation is the organizational body formed to represent the interests of the Monterey Hills Community.

"The Hill", as it is affectionately called by its residents, is a serene hilltop community consisting of 21 condominium and town home complexes, each governed by their respective homeowners associations (HOA). The Federation was formed as an alliance between these HOA's so that they may collaborate and work in the common interest of its residents. The Federation organizes the annual Monterey Hills Jazz Festival, the Movie Nights in the Park and other family friendly events for all the residents of Monterey Hills.
