The City of Laguna Niguel continues to be  at the forefront of Emergency Preparedness.    The latest CEPA (Community Emergency Preparedness Academy) is on-going and the newest class is slated to graduate on April 2.     It was of concern as the City's Emergency Preparedness Coordinator reflected upon the challenges being faced by South County Cities to conduct similar efforts--having for instance seen cancellations of classes by the City of Laguna Hills during the Quarterly Team Laguna Niguel Responds CERT Team training held on February 21 at Laguna Niguel City Hall.

The need to be prepared is ever so critical especially as it is not a question of if the next big calamity hits--but when.    Two of the members of the CERT team provided a training on being prepared during the February 21 meeting and shared the latest on their on-going Community Outreach Effort.  The resources are noted her for reference here--They are directly downloadable and there is no need to have a "Dropbox" Account:
