PETS OF THE, WEEK Sherman is a 3 year old neutered Pit Bull Mix that came to the shelter as a stray. He is an active, young canine looking for a home with pet parents who have the time to provide plenty of exercise and playtime. Sherman is currently attending obedience classes while at the shelter to exercise his brain and teach him some basic doggie manners (which he is learning quickly!). His smarts and love of his human pals will make him a great companion who enjoys learning new tricks and completing tasks to please his humans. Pit Bull fun fact: This breed makes horrible guard dogs as they were originally bred to be friendly toward their people handlers. Because of their love for humans, they are more likely to invite strangers into the home than to scare them away! Sherman can be adopted for $69. ID#A1334818 Tag#C197 Sammy is a 3 year old neutered grey tabby cat whose previous owner could no longer care for. His beautiful silver coat is hard to resist from touching and this friendly feline doesn't complain about the attention. This laid back guy has simple needs such as a cozy spot in the house for naps, some healthy kitty kibble, and perhaps a keyboard to stomp on while you are surfing the web. Feline fun fact: It has been scientifically proven that petting a cat can lower one's blood pressure. So be heart healthy by stopping by the shelter to meet Sammy by asking for ID#A1341806 Tag#C861. Sammy can be adopted for $58. All adoption fees include vaccinations, spaying/neutering (upon adoption), a microchip and free Vet visit. Dog fees also include a 1 year license. Sherman and Sammy are at our Central County Shelter, 5480 Gaines Street, San Diego. The Shelter hours are 9:30AM to 5:30PM, Tuesday through Saturday or visit for more information. CERT Exercise More Than Successful Julian High School might have seemed like the set of a blockbuster disaster film on Saturday, as hundreds of people milled about in green hats and vests, toting survival gear, putting out fires and rescuing earthquake victims. But it was no movie set, there were no cameras or famous directors, or star-studded cast, just 350 dedicated CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) members from across San Diego County, participating in a county- wide disaster preparedness training exercise. Coordinated by the San Diego CERT Council, sponsored by the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services (DES) and hosted by Julian/Cuyamaca CERT and Teen CERT Julian, this exercise boasted the largest attendance since the CERT Council began offering county- wide disaster preparedness training over four years ago. Stasia Place - Richardson, an Emergency Services Coordinator from DES was pleased with the turnout. "While I say all the exercises have grown", referring to five other county-wide exercises since 2006, " this exercise has grown significantly. We have the most participation from the various CERT groups that we ever had. We have 24 out of 30 programs here". The all-day event provided CERT members the opportunity to expand on their training. By learning how to create staging areas for victims, providing search and rescue efforts, assessing and treating injuries and suppressing small fires, CERT members learned how they can be a valuable asset to their own community and to overwhelmed emergency response personnel during a true disaster. One CERT participant stated, "It really solidified the team work that's going to be required in a real emergency and it helped us to practice, practice, practice". In a courtyard at the back of one building, volunteers, done in Moulage make-up, played victims with varying injuries from burns to shock, to hysteria, seizures and even death. These victims were pulled from the makeshift earthquake damaged school auditorium by search and rescue teams, after safety coordinators determined the building was safe to enter. Don, who played a victim of a man up in a tree pruning when an earthquake hit and was impaled by a tree branch when he fell out commented on his experience. " I was left to die three times and I was save three times so I feel pretty good about that. Over all it was a great learning process and a lot of people knew what they were doing and some did not, but that is why we are all here". In another area near the Junior high school, three different fire suppression exercises took place. Two were video simulator extinguishers, while the other was the use of an actual fire extinguisher on an electronically ignited fire device. The importance of team effort was strongly emphasized. Though CERT members learned to prepare for all disasters, the theme of this training exercise was earthquake preparedness. Participants got the jarring opportunity to experience a 7.5 magnitude earthquake in the DES earthquake simulator. The simulator, a 24-foot long box trailer, rigged with hydraulic motion equipment, gave a pretty exciting and eye-opening ride to participants sitting in easy chairs. Carefully placed books, plants, dishes and fake cardboard CD players flew off the shelves, stressing the importance of securing articles in your home. After the ride, CERT members had the opportunity to learn about several disaster preparedness products, such as a special putty designed specifically for securing items around the house. No disaster preparedness program would be successful without the participation of the dedicated men and women of our fire and police municipalities. by Robyn Adams Disaster prevention and emergency response is their job and many dedicated their time off and their expertise to this event. Sheriff's officers from Julian and San Diego County assisted in the training. Several fire captains and other fire personnel from Julian/ Cuyamaca, the City of San Diego and numerous other county fire stations ran the fire suppression and triage exercises. They were firm but encouraging in their resolve to teach CERT members how to do the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Brian from station 28B division in San Diego had this to say about why he participated in the day's events. " I have been a firefighter for twenty eight years and a medic for the last twenty and I am the CERT operations manager for the San Diego CERT team. We know, based on what we have seen what will happen, whether it was Northridge, Loma Prieta or the World Trade Center, what actually happens and it's my responsibility that pass that (information) on and do the best I can do for the people of my city". When asked if her department had actually used a CERT team during a disaster, Cal Fire Chief for Valley Center, Christine Wallace said. "Just recently, during the heavy rains that we had, we deployed our CERT team and they assisted the Fire Department in various areas throughout Valley Center by being our eyes and ears in troublesome spots. [it proved to be an asset to the fire department who couldn't be everywhere at once"]. CERT Julian coordinators and trainers, Johnny and Diane Hake were astounded by the turn out and decidedly moved by the dedication of all the CERT members, DES staff and professional emergency personnel who saved the day. " I'm thrilled with the response from our community", Diane Hake said when asked how the day was going. "and everyone is so much more safety oriented and disaster prepared. It's very encouraging and exciting and we are just overwhelmed with the response that we have had". Johnny and Diane, lost their Cuyamaca woods home in the 2003 Cedars fire and since then have been exceptionally strong community advocates in helping victims get back on their feet, so it is no surprise that they spear-headed the Julian CERT program and were instrumental in creating a 186 member strong CERT team. Their dream to bring CERT to their own community has been a driving force in their lives since 2005. When asked what CERT meant to him, Johnny Hake said with emotion, " It touches on every single thing that this community has experienced, more than once. It teaches you to start with your family and help yourself and that's the first thing to do in any disaster cause there aren't enough professional responders to help. [When I think about the program, it's life saving, I know it is. It will save lives, it will save minds, it will save spirits"] Kevin Dubler, District Chief for the Julian- Cuyamaca Fire Protection District commented on the success of CERT Julian. .... I don't know how they [Johnny and Diane Hake] do it. To get the number of people through in the last year [amazes me]. Johnny doesn't let up. He's kind of like a pitbull, always chewing on your leg until you do what he wants you to and it works very well for him. He's done one heck of a job and Diane has been supporting him the whole time. We have one of the fastest growing CERT teams in the county and it's all because of them". Of course Johnny and Diane are always quick to acknowledge all the help they receive and that they do not do this alone. Equally important to the Hakes, was embracing the teenagers of Julian Fire Captain Steve "Chucko" Sheppard, for the Julian- Cuyamaca Fire Protection District was thrilled to take on the training for the Teen CERT program. "In the beginning we were dealing with quite a few kids that April 28, 2010 had an attitude. They didn't want to be there, it was required. Then after about the third lecture we saw some lights going off. Kids started getting it and started to understand this was a way for them to come into their own power, that this was a good vehicle to help them make a good career choice when they get out of high school". Amber Kendall, a senior at Julian High and a CERT graduate spoke about her take on the program and her friends who attended. " The teens get together and do better and spend their spare time on well thought projects instead of just running around town and running amok". With Coach Tim White's perseverance, he was chosen to serve as a facilitator, and mentor for the TEEN CERT program by DES (Office of Emergency Services). The TEEN CERT program is now being reviewed for implementation in Chula Vista, Sweetwater, San Miguel, Mountain Empire, San Marcos and Valley Center. Disaster preparedness training is hard work and like any good disaster preparedness plan, you plan for food. At noon, starving CERT participants took a break from fighting fires and saving lives and found themselves rescued by sandwiches, chips and apples, provided by Jeremy's on the Hill, . ,iii  and the Candied Apple Bakery. The much-needed sustenance was served up by the Julian Queen's court. Smokey the Bear and McGruff, the crime dog made the rounds during lunch, shaking hands and taking photos ops. Fundraising efforts took place throughout the day and since no Julian based rescue operation is complete without apple pie, Julian Teen CERT sold the coveted dessert to support the more than 65 members of the only Teen CERT program in San Diego County. The Julian Lion's club cooked hotdogs and hamburgers later in the day and a local mechanic and CERT offered automotive advice for a dollar. All proceeds went to CERT Julian. Several vendors were on hand and Life + Gear, a company dedicated to providing disaster survival products, donated several items in an impromptu raffle for CERT members. Stasia Place- Richardson ended the event with a debriefing question and answer period with all the participants. They discussed what worked, what didn't and how could we all do better next time. Happy but tired participants left with thank you gifts from DES. Hats, lanyards and Shake, Rattle and Roll T-shirts.
