Pruneyard - Dry Creek
Pruneyard - Dry Creek CERT
- Sharon Teeter
- Mark Moore
The Pruneyard - Dry Creek CERT was formed in 2012 under the leadership of Steven Teeter. Steven helped build the neighborhood CERT from an original 13 members to a current number of 28. The neighborhood is bounded by Dry Creek Road to the south, Leigh Ave to the east, Hamilton Ave to the north, and Bascom Ave to the west. There are approximately 900 residences including two streets of apartments and duplexes in the north-east corner of this neighborhood. Also, as part of this community, several streets east of Leigh Ave were annexed to the City of Campbell from the City of San Jose and subsequently adopted into the Pruneyard - Dry Creek area.
At least once a year, some of our members will walk a section of the neighborhood with flyers encouraging neighbors to join or at least to learn something about their neighborhood CERT. We hold 15-minute duration radio calls every Monday evening where we practice checking-in, a hypothetical inject, and checking-out; we also hold two team exercises a year including one night exercise. We participate in the annual Neighborhood Night Out at our local neighborhood school where we promote the CERT program.
Our team members meet every third Sunday of the month for two hours where we discuss forms and procedures, have a table top exercise, and also include time to socialize. During the year, other team activities include attending County Fire refresher courses and HAM radio operator trainings, but we also volunteer at the First Aid station during city-sponsored events such as: Valentine's Run, Eggstravaganza Easter Egg Hunt, Bunnies & Bonnets Parade, Oktoberfest, and Boogie on the Avenue.

San Tomas CERT
- Debbie Harris
The CERT program for the San Tomas neighborhood was founded in 2014 with only four members. One of these members—Debbie Harris—accepted the challenge of leading this group in and around the Westmont neighborhood.
As of 2017, the team's membership has increased to more than ten extremely dedicated members. All of the members are certified Emergency Responders for the City of Campbell that reside within a two-mile radius of Westmont High School. The San Tomas members frequently practice their communication skills via handheld radios—a preferred method of communication, since radios are by far the most reliable method of communication during and immediately following a disaster. Members also attend regular meetings, drills, and social events.
The San Tomas group is a pro-active, collaborative, and cohesive team of individuals from a variety of backgrounds. The team embraces opportunities to reach out to its neighbors, as well as other Campbell and neighboring city residents. Members also participate in community outreach events, and collaborate with local schools with the goal of educating individuals about CERT, as they try to recruit more neighbors to join them in their efforts to help the San Tomas and Westmont neighborhoods during an emergency or disaster.
The San Tomas Community Emergency Response Team looks forward to the continued growth of its team and the ability to help its neighborhood.
