History shows us that in times of disaster, people will turn to the church for aid. Like the parable of feeding the multitude, providing a venue to speak to congregations allows for the "fruits of preparedness" to be shared with all communities. If you go to church, temple, mosque or to a synagogue, this information is for you. If you are agnostic or atheist, this information is for you. The Los Angeles Fire Department as well as the many CERT team volunteers does not care about what makes us different, but rather, how can we best serve our community in times of crisis and disaster (After a disaster, we are all the same). "I can give a man a fish and feed him today, or I can teach him to fish and feed him for a lifetime". By teaching you what I know, I am teaching you to fish.
A special thank you goes to Ms. Kimberly Dyer (pictured above) for staying persistent and your follow up phone calls. I am very glad that we did not miss this great day.
