CERT Team Member,
Encinitas CERT (EncCERT) will be participating in the 36th annual Encinitas Spring Street Fair on Saturday April 27 and Sunday April 28. The Encinitas Street Fairs have been one of the primary source for citizens to sign up for EncCERT as well as donors and grantors to see the EncCERT programs and progress. It is an important event for us. EncCERT will be promoting the “Are You Ready” and “Hand’s Free CPR” programs as well.
Volunteers will briefly explain CERT responsibilities and emergency preparedness to, and collect basic contact information from, those who stop by and are interested in our programs. Handouts and brochures will be used.
Volunteers are needed to work two to three hour shifts between the hours of 8 AM and 6:00 PM. As a volunteer you’ll be expected to hand out brochures and take down the names of folks interested in our programs.
As a thank you for your time, following the event both days, we’ll be inviting volunteers to a complimentary dinner nearby.
And as an added bonus, for each hour that you volunteer, you will gain a raffle entry to win some cool CERT gear!
If you have never participated in the Encinitas Street Fair you’ll find it fun, friendly, and relaxed. You’ll have an opportunity to meet friends, other EncCERT members, and make new friends. So sign up for a time block!
The Encinitas Spring Street Fair is one of the largest street festivals in San Diego County, with more than 450 vendor booths, featuring arts and crafts, antiques, clothing, items from around the world, good food, live music and much more. There’s international food, children’s rides, four live stages, and the craft brewery beer garden. S. Coast Highway 101 from D to J streets will be the location of the event. Our booth is located in front of the 1st Street Bar between E and F streets.
More information about the Spring Street Fair is on the Encinitas 101 Website.
