City of La Mirada Recognizes March as American Red Cross Awareness Month
The La Mirada City Council proclaimed March 2018 as American Red Cross Awareness Month at the March 13 meeting.
The American Red Cross provides compassionate care to those in need. Their network of generous donors, volunteers, and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, across the country and the world.
“The American Red Cross is asking people to help others during the month of March by giving blood, becoming a volunteer, participating in a disaster class, or making a donation to help a family,” says Community Services Director Lori Thompson.
La Mirada residents are encouraged to help others in the month of March by taking part in the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. The CERT program is an all-hazard training offered by the Los Angeles County Fire Department. This program begins on Tuesday, April 24 from 6 to 10 p.m. This valuable course is designed to help residents protect themselves and their family, and their neighborhood in an event of a disaster or emergency. Lessons will include Fire Safety, Hazardous Material and Terrorist Incidents, Disaster Medical Operations, and Search and Rescue. Registration closes on Friday, April 13.
