On September 15th, Altadena and Sierra Madre CERT teams will go toe-to-to while demonstrating some invaluable disaster-preparedness techniques.
The competitive events will involve triage, first-aid, fire suppression, and more. I hope Altadena doesn't totally humiliate Sierra Madre -- they are our neighbors, after all.
The Smackdown and demonstrations will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Sierra Madre Memorial Park, 232 W. Sierra Madre Boulevard. (Hmm, look who has home court advantage.)
There will be hotdogs and sodas for sale, and you're encouraged to bring along a dish to share.
(Note: CERT could also use a few good, or even bad, actors to play the part of disaster "victims." If you're interested, contact Carolyn Seitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
