  1. Will this become available in the South County?

  2. That is a great question! We conducted a CERT Class in the South last April, and we are actively planning on a class in the Long Beach area sometime this spring. We have not identified a date yet. If you would like more information please feel free to contact me. Thanks for your interest!
