Anthony Stevens from the DC Government will be speaking about the CERT program.  Serve DC’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteer program trains citizens to be better prepared to respond to emergencies in their communities. When emergencies happen, CERT members can  provide critical support to first responders, immediate assistance to victims and can help organize spontaneous  volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the community safety.

CERT training is free and open to anyone who lives, works or congregates in the District of Columbia. Classes include:

  • Disaster Preparedness
  • Fire Safety
  • Medical Operations and First Aid
  • Search and Rescue
  • Disaster Psychology
  • Terrorism

The President of the United States lives in a National Park

Every president except George Washington has called the White House and its surrounding grounds his place of work, rest, and solitude. Recognizable around the world, the White House stands as a symbol of democracy. The White House and its park grounds serve not only as the seat of the executive branch of government of the United States of America, but also as an iconic place for civil discourse.
