?? Immigrant\Community CERT training had made a difference?? The WHOLE COMMUNITY is needed.

Could how individual, family, and community members make a difference in response to emergencies by having awareness, and training with local responders (Fire\EMS, Law Enforcement) with CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) training specifically for immigrant community members?

Many immigrants have developed a fear, and avoid contact with public officials and specifically with those in uniforms for fear of deportation, or other fears that may have been developed in their country of origin.

As these individuals, and families settle into their new homes in the U.S. these fears have to be reduced to ensure safety, and their participation as 'WHOLE COMMUNITY' members to address crisis and emergency issues that requires participation by all.

Can CERT make a difference?

Let's promote this awareness and training in all our communities.
