III.       Old Business:

A.   ASNC CERT medical kit – status of purchase of replacement supplies (expired shelf life)

IV.       New Business:

A.   New Community Project Funding Request – Discussion of the following motion:

1.     $200, CERT Helmets & Vests – Motion to allocate up to $2000 in community project funds (Category:  Public Safety) to purchase CERT helmets and vests for graduates of future CERT classes held within ASNC boundaries (B2 & B7).  The LAFD no longer has the funds to purchase these items, which previously were handed out to all CERT graduates.  As a result the class in Hermon, which is starting Mar 15th, will not receive gear if this funding request is not approved.  CERT's entire identify is defined by these safety clothes – therefore it's very important that other organizations pick up this missing piece of CERT funding.  The LAFD will continue to pay for the majority of the costs (ie. conducting CERT classes free of charge), as well as help ASNC secure a bulk discount of vests and helmets through their distributor, SOS Survival Products.  [Request Originator: Mark Legassie, Public Safety Cmte Chair]New CERT Level 1 certification program being offered on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm, starting March 15  (Hermon Community Church Fellowship Center, 5800 Monterey Rd, LA 90042).
