NEIGHBORHOOD SAFETY AND PREPAREDNESS
With the support of Costa Mesa Emergency Services Coordinator
Jerry Verwolf, steps are being taken to strengthen the Neighborhood
Safety and Preparedness Course and make it even more valuable to
Costa Mesa residents. One step is training a team to be able to teach
the American Heart Assn. CPR program ourselves.
The goal is to become an association training site, with special
privileges, according to Diane Hill. To make this happen, Verwolf is
covering the expense of the two full days of training with the
understanding that those taking the training will volunteer their
time, so the CPR classes within the Neighborhood Safety and
Preparedness Course can continue to be free to Costa Mesa residents.
This training will be all day April 19 and 20. The city is especially
looking for one more people who can speak both English and Spanish to
help us take this program into the Spanish-speaking community.
If you know anyone who wants to help make a difference in Costa
Mesa by doing this work, please e-mail cmprepared@ comcast.net or
call Diane Hill, (714) 546-4252.
