Two CERT Classes now open for enrollment
The Long Beach Fire Department is hosting TWO upcoming CERT Classes that are now open for enrollment! CERT stands for the Community Emergency Response Team.
Wednesday Night Class
The next CERT Class will begin on July 23rd and run for seven consecutive Wednesday nights, plus one Saturday morning. Classes will be held in the evening from 6:00 PM until approximately 9:00 PM. The dates are as follows: July 23rd, 30th, August 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th, September 3rd, and Saturday September 6th.
3 Day Weekend Class
We also have a 3-Day Weekend CERT Class on August 22nd, 23rd, and 24th. Class will start Friday evening and run from 6:00pm until approximately 10:00pm. The Saturday and Sunday class will start at 8:00am and run until 5:00pm.
BOTH classes cover the same material. If you would like to attend either of these classes, NOW is the time to sign up. These seats fill up very quick.
To enroll, simply email Will Nash at Will.Nash@longbeach.gov. Please state whether you’d like to attend the Wednesday Night class, or the 3-Day Weekend Class.
If you are one of the first 35 people to respond, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that you have been selected to attend. Responses received after the first 35 will be put on a "standby list". You’ll be notified if a seat becomes available, and/or kept on the Interest List for future classes.
Please make sure that you are able to make the dates involved. If you sign up, then don’t show, someone else has lost the opportunity to attend, and there is often a waiting list for open spots. If you sign up, then find yourself unable to attend this session, please let me know ASAP so I can fill your seat.
All classes are held at the Long Beach Fire Training Center at 2249 Argonne Avenue in Long Beach.
Topics of discussion will include:
· Disaster Preparedness
· Fire Extinguisher Training
· Disaster Medical Operations
· Search & Rescue Operations
· Organization & Disaster Psychology
· Terrorism and Bio-Medical Awareness
A one time donation of $10 is requested so that we may buy drinks and snacks for the class. For any questions, please contact Will Nash (Firefighter / PIO / CERT Coordinator) at 562-570-2516.

Faith Based Community Inclusion Circles
The California Conference for Equality and Justice (CCEJ) and the South Coast Interfaith Council (SCIC) will be hosting a series of Faith Based Community Inclusion Circles!
Community Inclusion Circles will create opportunities to build relationships through the power of community. In circle we will explore our own experiences to build a more inclusive community support system. Learn about restorative justice practices and infuse them into discussions, problem solving and community building. Throughout the series you will have an opportunity to be trained and certified in circle keeping.
Save the Date and join our first Faith Based Community Inclusion Circles. The location is graciously donated by the Long Beach Islamic Center.
August 13th, 2014
5:30pm to 8pm
Long Beach Islamic Center
1525 Long Beach Blvd.
Long Beach, CA 90813.
There is no criteria to participate. The circles will have a circle keeper trained in restorative practices and help set the circle guidelines, get the circle going and step back into the participant role so that the circle can organically grow. Prompts in the circle are various and often light and low risk. Circles hold very deep conversations as they allow participants to move the conversation. The magic of a circle brings people together affording community to develop without being facilitated.
This project is made possible due to the support of the California Endowment. Please feel free to share the attached flyer with friends and families of the faith community. RSVP's should be made to Christopher Covington at (562) 507-3144.

The Women’s Foundation of California is now accepting applications for the 2014–2015 Women’s Policy Institute (WPI) Fellowship. Applications are due no later than Friday, July 18, by 5 PM PST.
About the Women's Policy Institute
Now in its 12th year, the Women’s Foundation of California’s statewide Women’s Policy Institute (WPI) attracts and engages a diverse group of community-based women leaders who want to build their skills to influence public policymaking at the state level. The Institute amplifies the voices of women who are engaged in grassroots social justice work, training them on how legislation is made, broadening their networks across social justice movements and connecting them to policymakers.
Each year this nonpartisan Institute offers an environment where up to 25 women leaders can leverage their expertise about their community needs and apply their new skills, networks and knowledge to influence policy and budget solutions that will positively impact women and families in California. Since the program’s inception in 2003, over 300 Institute fellows have been trained to make lasting policy changes for their communities. Fellows have contributed to advocacy efforts of 57 policy projects and 26 bills—20 of which became California law. Learn more at: Women's Policy Institute.
