Sale OPEN for July Pickup
Periodically, Lamorinda CERT Foundation purchases items to resell. We sell both water storage items and fire extinguishers. The water items include FDA Approved, food grade empty plastic water barrels with associated drum wrenches, spigots, pumps and other accessories. The fire extinguishers are USA made, commercial quality, rechargeable extinguishers. Residents must pre-order. An email will be sent confirming your purchase. The advertised prices include all sales taxes. Sale closes at noon on Thursday, July 1, 2021. The pickup is scheduled for July 9 and 10.
Delivery is available in the Lamorinda area for a small fee. Delivery is intended for seniors and others who physically cannot pickup their orders.
We HIGHLY recommend purchasing water storage items as a Package as they contain everything needed for a single location including drum(s), wrench, dispensing method (spigot or pump), bleach, a bleach dosing syringe and instructions. To calculate how much water you need, multiply number of people * 2 gallons per day * number of days you want to have water to drink following a disaster. You can add additional drums of the same size for more capacity.
We are now offering smaller drums for those who have a hard time lifting the 44 pound 5 gallon Samson Stackers. We are offering 2.5 gallon Samson Stackers that only weigh about 22 pounds full. These are in a package of 6 that will last one person one week. The package is complete with wrench, bleach and everything you need.

Please purchase carefully as we are unable to accept returns or make refunds once product is picked up.
We are an all-volunteer organization and schedule pickup dates in cooperation with the fire district and when we can get our crew together. All products must be picked up on the pickup dates below. If you cannot arrange for pickup on the announced dates, PLEASE DO NOT ORDER.
Pickups will be behind MOFD Station 41, 1284 Moraga Way, Moraga, CA on:

Saturday morning, July 10, 2021 from 9 a.m. until noon
Lamorinda deliveries will be the week of July 12-16. During these days of COVID-19, we are practicing contactless delivery to keep everyone safe. We will delivery your drums, fire extinguishers and accessories to an outside location near the street or an open garage. We will try to text or call before delivery.
El Cerrito/Kensington pickups WILL be available at the same times at the El Cerrito Corporation Yard at the East end of Schmidt Lane.
The Moraga-Orinda Fire District and the El Cerrito Fire Department have no responsibility for this program. It is strictly a program of Lamorinda CERT Foundation, a wholly volunteer 501(c)(3) charity. No fire district personnel have any answers to any questions and they cannot deliver product. All product must be picked up at the designated pickup times because these are the only times the volunteers will be available.
