Loma Linda and Colton CERT says:  “Let’s Roll”!

KNBC-TV Donates News Van to CERT

KNBC/Telemundo employees Alex Vasquez and Jody Nema review complete operations and safety procedures with Loma Linda CERT and R.A.C.E.S. volunteers.

A very special “thank you” goes out to Shannon Kendall for his forward thinking, communication, negotiation, and patience in bringing about the arrival of this news van to Loma Linda. And we are especially grateful to KNBC-TV for their generous donation of this vehicle. When this van becomes fully operational, it will contribute greatly to the future safety of Loma Linda residents and to the timely communication between R.A.C.E.S./CERT volunteers and our Loma Linda First Responders.
