It's not the biggest social event of the season, but it's close. Come to our open house on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. We'll be at the Tahiti shed, which is on the Tahiti cul-de-sac at the ocean's edge. Come see how DBERT stands ready to assist the community in a disaster. We will have the emergency shed open for display. You can gaze upon our equipment, speak with CERT trained members, and learn how you can help. Barring any emergency calls, there will also be members and equipment on display from the Marin County Fire Department, California Highway Patrol, and Marin County Sheriff’s Office. AND there will be refreshments.
The Marin Medical Reserve Corps and the Marin Medical Reserve Corps Foundation will be providing First Aid for Disaster Response (FADR) training in Tomales on November 17, 2018. The session will run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will be held at the Tomales Presbyterian Church.
Attendance is limited to the first 30 people who reserve a spot, so register now. Contact Donna Clavaud: firstname.lastname@example.org or (707)364- 6397.
There is a suggested donation of $5 per person. You can do better than that.
Here's a fancy flier with more information.
On Saturday, April 28, 2018 DBERT held a very successful drill as part of our on-going program of keeping volunteers practiced and ready to perform in the case of a real emergency. We were joined by representatives of two other local teams - from Tomales and from San Geronimo Valley. You can read more and see pictures at the Ready Marin Web site here.
Lawson's Landing provided free camping space and other help to victims of the recent fires. The star of the operation was Nicki Vogler, a member of the DBERT Managers Team. Fred Allebach of the Sonoma Valley Sun posted a blog describing his experience at The Landing on October 17, 2017. He specifically notes the work of DBERT and its Operations Manager, Ted Melden.
