    School's Open: Please Drive Safely 
    You can help ensure children's safety on their way to and from school
     
    Thomas V. McKernan
     Thomas V. McKernan
    All of us want our children to grow up safe and injury-free. And now that school is back in session, it's a good time to remind ourselves of the hazards children face on their way to and from school. Incidents with cars are still a leading cause of death and serious injury for school-age children, whether they're walking, riding their bikes, being driven, or driving themselves to school.

    We can all do a number of simple things to help out. The most important is to slow down and pay attention while driving near schools. Surprisingly, recent studies indicate that as many as two-thirds of drivers speed in school zones. Next, follow basic safety rules. Parents taking kids to and from school often put them at risk by not securing them with a seat belt, car seat, or booster seat; failing to yield to pedestrians when entering a school driveway; or jaywalking across busy streets with their kids in tow.  More...

    The Big One: Ready yet?


    Californians with even the most passing knowledge of their state's earthquakes know that when the Big One comes, the fault on which it's most likely to occur is the fabled San Andreas.

    When those big plates slip, tremendous force can be, and has been, unleashed...

    Secure heavy items in your home and office, including TVs, computers and bookshelves. Look into the structural integrity of where you live, and shore up the place if it needs it.

    Make a plan with your family about what to do when the Big One comes. Communications, including cell towers, will be down for a time. Have an out-of-state contact through whom all of you can communicate. Set a place to meet if you are apart when it happens.

    Create disaster kits with food, water, flashlights, portable radios, medications and a first-aid kit.

    Drop, cover and hold on when the quake hits. Put old shoes under your bed in case of broken glass if the quake hits at night.

    September is National Preparedness Month

    September is National Preparedness Month.   On September 7th, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will  present a scroll to the Office of Emergency Management proclaiming that September 2010 is County of Los Angeles Preparedness Month.  Also check out,www.espfocus.org andwww.ready.gov for more extensive materials on emergency preparedness of all kinds.


    Category 4 Hurricane Earl threatens U.S.

    PROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos - Islanders wary of a possible blow from powerful Hurricane Earl pulled boats ashore and packed supermarkets on the Turks and Caicos on Tuesday as the Category 4 storm howled over open seas toward the eastern United States.

    MONEYWISE: September is an excellent time of year to put finances in order


    Most of us would rather spend the lazy days of late summer sitting on the beach or hiking Yosemite than dealing with our finances, but early September is actually an ideal time to tackle "the numbers," for two reasons: First is that there's still time to correct tax, retirement and spending problems. Second, leaving the task until December means it likely won't get the attention it deserves because of competition with the holidays.

    What might this late midyear checkup entail? Here's a start:

    Budget: Taking a good - and honest! - look at personal and family expenditures almost always uncovers opportunities to cut back on non-essentials. For some consumers, the exercise can be utterly sobering, as many of us don't track all of those $5, $10 and $20 purchases that may be frivolous or a deterrent to increasing the savings cushion. Good targets for bringing the budget back into line are subscriptions, memberships and that $3.50 daily latte...

    Emergency fund: It's advisable to have six months of living expenses - three months at a minimum - set aside for emergencies like a job loss or unexpected health issues. If it is underfunded, look to the budget-busting culprits and redirect them.

STOP CRIME 
 

You Are Going On Vacation - Help Burglars Take One Too!
  • Have good locks on all doors and windows, and USE THEM!
  • Ask a neighbor to watch the house while you're away. It's a good idea to leave your vacation address and telephone number with a neighbor so you can be reached in case of an emergency.
  • Never leave your house key hidden outside your home.
  • Stop all deliveries, or arrange for a neighbor to pick up your mail, newspapers and packages.
  • Arrange for someone to mow your lawn, rake leaves and maintain the yard to give the home a lived-in look.
  • Plug in timers to turn lights and a radio or television on and off at appropriate times. This helps to disguise the fact that you are away.

Everyone plays a role in creating and maintaining a safe environment.
 
Report Crime - Don't assume that your neighbors have already reported the crime or that the police already know. Report criminal or suspicious activity each and every time it occurs.
 
 
DIRECT HB Dispatch Number 
310-524-2750
 

Reasons for calling the non-emergency number include, but are not limited to the following:
 
  • You want to report a nuisance, such as a noise or parking complaint.
  • To report a non-emergency crime, one that did not just occur, and the
    suspect(s) are not in the immediate area. 
  • You have questions about something suspicious occurring in your
    neighborhood, and you are not sure it is criminal activity.
  • Solicitor just came to your door or are in the neighborhood.
  • Trash diggers.
  • Unusual foot traffic.
  • People you don't recognize walking your block with no seemingly specific direction or purpose.
  • Parked, occupied vehicles at unusual hours.
  • Abandoned vehicles.
  • Business transactions conducted from vehicles.
  • Unfamiliar people peering into parked vehicles.
  • Person removing vehicle accessories.
 
Be alert and observant wherever you are and learn to recognize signs of criminal behavior. Report all crime to the HBPD even if it is only an attempt. Crime cannot be controlled or prevented if it is not reported. By reporting crimes and suspicious activities you can protect yourself and others.
 
 
If you are in another city in the South Bay, these are their direct dial phone numbers to their PD/FD dispatch.

Competition Team Needs A Couple More Members - D6

Hi RBCERTAA members:

Have some fun and use your skills!

We still need a couple of people to be on our competition team for September 11th Burbank Invitational.  RBCERTAA team is currently doing review/trainings.  The next one is Wednesday, August 25 in the Redondo Room at Beach Cities Health District.  This will be so much fun and an opportunity to use your training.  Please consider being on the team.  Drop me an email!

If your interested below is a recap on the information:
RBCERTAA has been invited to the Burbank Fire Department 2010 CERT Invitational Competition.  We are putting together a CERT team to compete.    The date of the competition is Saturday, September 11th.  There will be some training to prepare.

Here's some details:
Ten teams will compete in high-intensity skills challenges based solely on the CERT curricula.

Teams will compete at the following stations:
1. Fire Suppression: a live fire pit will test extinguisher skills
2. Victim Triage and Casualty Collection Area
3. Search & Rescue Operations:  teams will clear a four-story fire training tower
4. Cribbing and victim extrication: a heavy object will need to be cribbed to rescue a victim
5. Disaster Medical Operations:  moulaged victims will increase assessment realism
6. and a written exam to test basic knowledge of all CERT modules

Sandy Marchese
RBCERTAA, President

RBCERTAA@aol.com



Attention:  RBCERTAA
The California Shakeout is October 21st.  The key person from our RBCERTAA that is putting together the plans is Monty Ruth, Board Member along with other leaders from neighboring CERT organizations.
The location of this joint drill with Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, El Segundo, Manhattan Beach and perhaps other CERT organizations has been established as the AES Plant at 1100 North Harbor Drive, Redondo Beach.
This is a far more industrial location than the previous site (see attached photos). The new site has been the location for scenes from several movies, e.g. Die Hard, and affords a variety of search and rescue challenges, e.g. narrow staircases, poor lighting and cramped conditions in some areas.

For those of you already signed up for this drill be sure to note the new location. Because parking at the site will be limited we urge you to car pool. A list of those attending will be distributed with the final notice to facilitate arranging for car pools.
Shakeout Drill pre-Training has been established at the Beach Cities Health District: Wed September 1st, Wed Sept 8th and Wed Sept 15th. All are from 6 pm to 9 pm. If these are successful some additional training dates will be established. Our First training will be on CERT Command Structure. We need a head count of how many members will be attending our first training meeting?

Reply  to RBCERTAA
Use:  "Shakeout Trainings" in your subject line (to confirm you'll attend the trainings)
Use:  "Attending Skakeout" in your subject line (to confirm you'll attend the Shakeout)
Include your full name in the email (this is important).
Thanks so much.

Manhattan Beach CERT: Next Training Class





October 9, 16, and 23, 2010






Our evening classes went quite well, and we're gearing up now for our next class in October, National Preparedness Month.  Our next class will be on, October 9, 16, and 23, 2010.  These are from 8AM to 4:30PM each Saturday.  One must attend all three days to complete the course.

 NOTE:   We have room for 32 persons in the class.  The first 32 that email me and send in their checks to the address at the bottom of the flyer are in.  We've never come up short yet.

 

The cost of the Class has gone up as we have replaced one cheap gas wrench with another more expensive multi tool in the back pack.  It is now $60.00 and you get back and out of this much more.

 For those of you that are interested in your Red Cross 3 year First Aid Card, we will set up an evening after you graduate to finish the certification.. A small fee for the book and card may be paid later.  Also in November we will have a Red Cross CPR Training session too.

Please feel free to call me on my cell if you have any questions. 

Thanks,

ShakeOut Header

The 2010 Great California ShakeOut on October 21 is now less than three months away, and already more than 4.5 million Californians are registered to participate. In 2009 this milestone was not reached until mid-September! 

If you have renewed your registration already, thank you!  If you or your organization has not yet renewed your registration for 2010, please login today to easily update your information and confirm your participation in this year's drill.  Now is the time to be planning how you will participate.

Help us contact you...
Have you been registered for awhile but this is this the first ShakeOut Update you have received?  (Today's email is sent from a different address. Past emails are on our ShakeOut Updates page.)  If you haven't been receiving these, the reason is likely your "spam" email filter.  The solution varies with each email provider. You may need to add info@shakeout.org to your email address list or to your spam filter "whitelist" (especially schools or larger organizations- ask your IT staff for the procedure).

Prepare, Protect, and Recover!
The ShakeOut is an opportunity for us to prepare together, before a major earthquake happens again in California. To help we are sending you preparedness tips each month, following the Seven Steps to Earthquake Safety:
Check it Out! Step 6: Check it Out! One of the first things you should do following a major disaster (if you are not injured) is to check for injuries and damages that need immediate attention. Make sure you are trained in first aid and know how to identify hazards such as damaged gas, water, and electrical lines. The webpage for this step has basic instructions for assessing injuries and damages and how to handle each appropriately.


NOTE: Firefighters, preparedness officials, and other experts agree that "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" is the best way to protect yourself during earthquakes. Other methods can be very dangerous. Read our special report to learn why.

Who will ShakeOut with you?
A great way to help your friends, relatives, community, employer, and others get prepared is to encourage them to register to participate in the ShakeOut!  Let them know you are participating and ask them to join you.  You can also display posters, distribute flyers, and use other materials  available on the ShakeOut Resources page.

We're all in this together...
The ShakeOut has grown because of people like you, who see the value of practicing how to protect ourselves and for getting prepared. We have formed the Earthquake Country Alliance to foster an earthquake and tsunami resilient California. Our signature activity is the ShakeOut. If you have similar commitments please join the Alliance.

Thank you for your participation and commitment to earthquake safety!

You may want to consider doing the MYN 9 step Drill with your block on Saturday Oct. 23 in addition to the ShakeOut! Drop, Cover and Hold On Drill on Oct 21 at 10:21 a.m.

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING A MAJOR DISASTER AT HOME...

1. TAKE CARE OF YOUR LOVED ONES.
2. PROTECT YOUR HEAD, FEET AND HANDS.
3. CHECK THE GAS AT YOUR HOME.
4. SHUT OFF WATER AT THE HOUSE...

If you have had the MYN training but have not yet trained your block and would like some assistance just let me know.


View the MYN PowerPoint Presentation

"Map Your Neighborhood" (MYN) is a program designed to help neighborhoods prepare for disasters.  It is a program that HBNW has adopted and highly encourages Block Captains to attend a class and implement the program on their street.
 
MYN will help you to:
  • Learn the "9 Steps to Take Immediately Following a Disaster" to secure your home and to protect your neighborhood. It is hard to think clearly following disaster and these steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives.
  • Identify the Skills and Equipment each neighbor has that would be useful in an effective disaster response. Knowing which neighbors have supplies and skills helps your disaster response be timely, and allows everyone to contribute to the response in a meaningful way. 
  • Create a Neighborhood Map identifying the locations of natural gas for quick response if needed.
  • Create a Contact List that helps identify those with specific needs such as elderly, disabled, or children who may be home alone during certain hours of the day.
  • Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood during the first hour following a disaster and take the necessary actions.
