Preparation is Key

The Peñasquitos Emergency Response Council (PERC) hosted a family preparedness fair this past January at Hilltop Park, including a great deal of hands on activities to help families become better prepared the coming year. An assortment of activities dotted the park, like free goodies, information and training such as free CPR training (not certification), child fingerprinting, seventy-two hour kits (free items for the kits), emergency training by San Diego Fire and Rescue Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) and SDG&E, as well as the presence of the Red Cross and other professional organizations. Pets that were brought along could receive low-cost micro chipping from the County Animal Control. To keep up to date with emergency preparedness, communication, and volunteer opportunities, visit
