POSTPONED - Register today for award-winning Community Emergency Preparedness Academy
The best way to protect you and your family in a disaster is to have essential skills that could ultimately save your life. You can learn those skills and more by participating in our next free Community Emergency Preparedness Academy (CEPA) that begins on April 14.
CEPA is a joint effort by the City of Mission Viejo, Orange County Fire Authority, Sheriff’s Department, Care Ambulance and other emergency response agencies. The program takes place Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:30-9:30 pm through May 5.
This award-winning Mission Viejo academy is organized through the Neighborhood Watch Program and designed to prepare neighbors to work together before, during and after disasters to minimize injuries and help with recovery. The academy is a 21-hour certified curriculum that follows FEMA guidelines for citizen emergency response teams.
Led by emergency personnel, the academy teaches participants about law and fire disaster operations, fire safety, light search & rescue, disaster medical, basic crisis intervention and neighborhood mobilization. The sessions include hands-on exercises where students extinguish real fires, extricate bodies from heavy debris and treat mock injuries in response to a simulated earthquake.
