I'm now an official volunteer with the Palo Alto fire department.

They have a volunteer program in my city called Palo Alto Neighborhood Disaster Activities, or PANDA. I heard about it from a friend of mine and decided to take the course. I went to an evening class every week for 5 weeks, plus 1 all day Saturday class. We learned how to prepare for an emergency, what to do during an earthquake, basic first aid, and how to be a first responder in an emergency situation.

It seemed like useful information to have since I'm living in earthquake territory now. I'm impressed with the program. It was very well organized and we even got to work with some official firemen :).
