Paul Dutton CERT Trainer

Crescenta Valley C.E.R.T.

Paul Dutton of Paul’s Professional Window Washing Inc. has been a C.E.R.T. (Community Emergency Response Team) Coordinator and Trainer for 6 years. Paul and Lisa Dutton started the Crescenta Valley C.E.R.T. program from scratch in 2006. In the last 6 years, they have donated over 3,000 hours of community time dedicated to C.E.R.T. and as Sheriff Volunteers for the Crescenta Valley Station. Since its beginnings, Lisa and Paul have held 12 trainings, 5 major drills, 6 refresher courses and countless meetings to help ready the Crescenta Valley (CV) for the next big disaster. C.V. CERT now has over 300 people trained in C.E.RT. ready to help their community.

As Paul says, “Were in the Land of La Crescenta” where we have hurricane force winds, power outages, hail storms, debris flows, flooding, the Station Fire, mountain lions and bear sightings- oh my! We have to be ready up here in Crescenta Valley!

C.E.R.T. is a 24 hour training course that is an all hazard, all risk course that teaches you, that you will be on your own in the case of a major disaster like an earthquake. You could be on your own for 7-10 days without power, electricity, gas or clean water. C.E.R.T. teaches people to have a “Family Disaster Plan” and a Grab and Go Bag for every person in your house. It is also important to carry one in your car and leave one at work, too! C.E.R.T. helps you prepare and teaches you how to take care of yourself, your family, your neighbors and your community.

C.V. C.E.R.T has 10 teams and locations where fellow C.E.R.T.’s will meet up and work as teams to help their community. C.V. C.E.R.T. works with L.A.S.D. at the station and coordinates its efforts with the Sheriffs, Fire, C.V.W.D., S.C.E. and the Red Cross to better help Crescenta Valley get ready for the next big disaster. All of this because Paul and Lisa want to help their community and feel C.E.R.T. is the best way to help ready ourselves for whatever comes our way in the Land of La Crescenta!
