Events

The Lamorinda communities hold many civic events every year. Most of these events have need of volunteers. Sometimes the volunteers staff a booth; sometimes they provide traffic or parking control. Whatever the need, the organizers turn to local civic groups for help. CERT is one of the groups that are increasingly being asked to help. With our training and our numbers we are in a position to help and to spread the word about CERT.

The President's Volunteer Service AwardLamorinda CERT tracks the hours spent volunteering for each volunteer. In cooperation with MOFD Communications Support, we recognize our volunteers as they achieve various levels of time spent volunteering, each year and over their lifetime. We recognize the time by awarding The President’s Volunteer Service Awards from AmeriCorps and Points of Light. The award levels are: 100 hours, 250 hours, 500 hours annually and 4000 lifetime hours.
