Agencies team up, hope to make San Luis Obispo County most prepared in the nation

There is a new task force to make sure San Luis Obispo County is ready for an emergency. The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office, PG&E, and other agencies teamed up to make the county one of the most prepared counties in the nation. At a press conference Monday, the agencies launched a PSA campaign. Sheriff Ian Parkinson also announced additions to the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Parkinson says, "At this point we're looking at five additional CERT trailers to be placed throughout the county. We have five willing groups in various sections of the county and we have several already established." The task force on public safety was formed in January 2013 through a $75,000 donation from PG&E to the Sheriff's Advisory Foundation.
