Sacramento CERT helps test CA Department of Public Health CERT module for Community Reception Centers

Sacramento CERT helped the California Department of Public Health test a new California-specific CERT training module on Community Reception Centers (CRCs). A CRC is used to help check and decontaminate citizens in the event of radiological decontamination. CERT members were trained on radiation basics, how to properly use radiation detectors, personal protective equipment required to work in a CRC, and basic CRC operations. SFDCF and Sacramento CERT both hope that the CDPH training module receives rapid approval and is released to all CERT teams in California soon!
