Pasadena teens can learn how to lend a hand during a disaster at a free Pasadena Emergency Response Training (PERT) boot camp Wednesday, July 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rose Bowl Stadium. The event will cover disaster preparedness, basic first aid, fire suppression and search and rescue. Space is limited, so register today by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 744-4741.
PERT was developed by the Pasadena Fire Department to give residents of all ages the basic skills they’ll need to take care of themselves, their neighbors and co-workers after a major disaster when emergency crews may not be able to respond immediately. The training is perfect for neighborhood associations and community groups. To schedule a training or for more information visit www.cityofpasadena.net/fire/pert.asp or call
