The North San Luis Obispo County Community Emergency Response Training program is sponsoring "LISTOS," a Spanish class that teaches basic disaster response skills so you can safely help yourself and those around you.

This eight-hour class is taught in Spanish and is intended for the entire family, so children are welcome too. You will learn how to prepare for disasters, create a reunification and family communication plan, learn about disaster first aid and emotional support, how to back-up important documents, shut off utilities, and extinguish small fires.

Paso Robles fire officials are encouraging residents who speak Spanish to take this course and learn how to protect themselves, and their loved ones, assist their neighbors, and help their community when disaster strikes.

The class will be presented in the White Oak Room at Centennial Park, 600 Nickerson Dr., in Paso Robles, on Saturday, March 25 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. This class is offered at no cost to students. To register, call Cecilia Herrera, at 805 539-5349, or email her at
