Venturing Crew 911 was formed on March 13th, 2012. It's for youth that reside in the San Ramon Valley area. Venturing is co-ed, open to ages 14-20.
The core focus for this Venturing Crew will be about having fun while creating independent and team response skills based on the national Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) curriculum and organization. CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can respond to small fires, provide disaster medical triage and basic medical aid, conduct localized light search and rescue, organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.
