Announcing Canyons Emergency Preparedness Academy
by Bruce Newell, Reserve Firefighter
One of our common Community goals is to increase our safety, our preparation for all risks and our resilience after an emergency. If we experience a major earthquake, a fire or a flood, do you have a detailed plan for yourself and your household?

What is CEPA?
In this 6 meeting course you will develop your own plan for coping with an emergency. CEPA is patterned after the well know CERT format and the content is focused on potential canyon events. You will learn:
- To make your home, yourself and your family better prepared for emergencies
- Wildland and Structure Fire safety and how to operate a home fire extinguisher
- CPR / AED and basic first aid
- To perform basic home search and rescue operations
- To access the canyon emergency radio system
- To help your community prepare and organize for and deal with larger emergencies.
Our goal is to reach every resident with this course. Every new resident should attend. If we are all on the same page, the story will have a better ending.
