About Halcyon Neighborhood Association Community Emergency Response Team (HNA CERT)
The purpose of this page is to coordinate disaster preparedness and response in the Halcyon neighborhood (Telegraph to Adeline, Ashby to Woolsey, in South Berkeley, CA). HNA CERT is dedicated to its motto: Save Lives, Meet Neighbors, Build Community.
Supported by the City of Berkeley, CERT volunteers are trained in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT volunteers will assist other in the community following a major disaster when professional first responders may not be available several days.
To help coordinate disaster response and find volunteer opportunities in the Halcyon neighborhood, please fill out one google form per household. HNA CERT is also actively seeking volunteers from the Halcyon community. No previous experience or special training required. To get involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
