G-Day Class #6 N. SLO Co. CERT

This morning the 6th class of the North San Luis Obispo County CERT graduated at the Paso Robles Emergency Operations Center (EOC) following a few hours of hands-on live exercises in various skill areas relating to CERT activities for which it had been classroom taught over the course of the previous four Thursday evenings. The entire class was divided up into groups of about eight people and each group visited a station devoted to each skill area. Below are images I captured of the proceedings.
