Trainees get their orders during earthquake drill
The City of Shoreline and the Shoreline Fire Department would like to congratulate 11 residents who recently graduated as new members of the City of Shoreline’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). 

The residents join about 200 others who have taken the training since 2003, many of whom decide to become City Disaster Workers. 

CERT members are trained in emergency preparedness, basic emergency response, light search and rescue, basic medical operations, small fire suppression and other useful skills that neighbors can use when helping neighbors during incidents such as widespread power outages, earthquakes, snow storms or other natural disasters.
CERT Trainees learn to deal with injuries
CERTs commit to 30 hours of training, background checks, and to joining the non-profit CERT organization in Shoreline. To learn more visit the webpage.

The photos were taken during the CERT class final drill, in which they respond to a simulated earthquake with mock injuries.

Names of the recent graduates:
  • Laura Banks
  • Tom DeBartolo
  • John Franklin
  • Donatta “Dondee” Franklin
  • Terry Garcia
  • Leroy King
  • Pam King
  • Jill Rucker
  • Michael Sinclair
  • Louise Tanguy
  • Krista Tenney
