Dancing away the morning for Walnut Creek CERT
Posted by ZumbaContraCosta on July 3, 2011
What better way to spend a weekend morning than to shimmy & shake to Zumba’s Latin beats, while raising funds for Walnut Creek CERT (Community Emergency Response Team). On June 18th Zumba Contra Costa’s Janice Litvin, accompanied by Claudia Lira, Parandis Banifatemi, & Lynda Penados, took CERT supporters, including Walnut Creek Mayor Cindy Silva and WC CERT’s director, Gayle Vassar all the way to a Salsa battle at the beautiful Shadelands Art Center.
Fema-endorsed CERT trains community volunteers to respond during a disaster in areas such as: fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, disaster medical operations, and most important, communication.
