Program: “Caldor Fire Animal Evacuations: Western El Dorado County ” by Cindy Bertsch, KG6IMU

Learn about animal evacuations as one part of a large wildfire response effort and what operating in a disaster environment looks like. Even if you never volunteer in a disaster area, the lessons learned are applicable for your personal preparedness. The talk will also highlight how ameratur radio is a useful tool for people to help their community even if radio operators are not part of an emergency communication group.

Cindy works as a professional civil engineer designing water and wastewater infrastructure. In her free time she volunteers in all aspects of emergency preparedness and response with the American Red Cross, San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department Community Emergency Response Team, Peninsula Humane Society Emergency Response Team, San Mateo County Large Animal Evacuation Group, and South County ARES.
