Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training
Approximately 5,000 people have completed the 22-hour CERT training in Long Beach, learning how to assist their families, neighbors and colleagues in the event of a significant incident. CERT graduates also learn how to prepare for a major disaster, and to be self-sustainable for several days. 
After a significant incident, public safety officials must prioritize their responses, and might be unable to reach some neighborhoods for several days. CERT teams would be able to serve as a force multiplier by going door-to-door, checking on residents, gathering and providing information, and providing some initial assistance.

Flu Vaccine Clinic in the 5th District


The City of Long Beach Department of Health, with assistance from the American Red Cross, has announced the dates for the 2012 Annual Flu Clinics. The clinics are for people age 60 and older and adults ages 18 - 59 who are at high-risk for serious complications from influenza.  
"Getting an annual flu shot has always been recommended for people over 60 and it is also important for anyone with a health condition that increases their risk of a serious complication from the flu" said Dr. Mitchell Kushner, City Health Officer. Adults under the age of 60 who should get annual seasonal flu shots include: 
  • Anyone with underlying chronic medical conditions, such as heart or lung conditions, or who are immune suppressed, e.g. persons with HIV/AIDS, receiving cancer treatment, on dialysis, or
  • Women who will be pregnant during flu season, or
  • Caregivers of seniors or infants 

Adults with Medicare Part B are urged to bring their Medicare card to the clinic to receive a free flu shot. A $2 donation to offset administrative costs will be requested from people who do not have Medicare
