RBCERTAA Is Ready for A Disaster

Redondo Beach Community Emergency Response Team Alumni Association (RBCERTAA) is an all volunteer, non-profit organization created to organize and maintain the skill levels of CERT graduates. We accomplish this by supporting and attending ongoing emergency preparedness training. Members are encouraged to achieve a high level of preparedness and provide volunteer support to the Redondo Beach Fire Department in the event of a major emergency.

RBCERTAA works closely with the Redondo Beach Fire Department, Safety Commission, Citizen Corp Council and the Medical Reserve Corps to ensure the community is prepared for major emergencies.

We Are Still Growing Our Capabilities and Still Need Your Help

With the recent donation of a Command Vehicle from Raytheon, the Communication Hub grant from the Beach Cities Health District and the upcoming donation of a second emergency supplies trailer from Leadership Redondo, RBCERTAA is becoming more and more prepared for any emergency. We are more than grateful for all of these donations. But we also recognize that we need to maintain all of this new equipment. And that maintenance takes money. Please click on the PayPal Donation Button and make a donation to the RBCERTAA General Fund today. Any amount, however large or small, will be greatly appreciated.
