Get CERTified

Know what to do in a disaster? Want to help others in case of emergency?

Neighborhood volunteers will be conducting a drill at 9 a.m. tomorrow at Tawny Park on Tawny Drive.

Volunteers are trained by the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department in the CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) program. After an event like an earthquake, they survey neighborhoods, do light search and rescue, triage victims and get information by HAM radio to the Emergency Operations Center.

Nine districts from across Pleasanton will be participating. People are welcome to stop by to watch and are encouraged to get CERT training for themselves.

Help Delaney

Friends of the Newton family will hold a fundraiser on Nov. 13 to help raise money for Delaney, a two-year-old diagnosed with a brain tumor.

While the youngster is being treated, her parents are living in hotel rooms and raising Delaney's one-year-old brother.

Sauced BBQ and Spirits in Livermore has offered to host the fundraiser, with 10% of all sales going to help pay for medical expenses. The event starts at 4 p.m.

For those who can't justify heading to a bar on a weekday afternoon, donations can also be made at
