LISTOS Class December 2019Twenty-five Sonoma County residents are becoming certified LISTOS Trainers in Sonoma County this week. LISTOS is a grassroots preparedness program tailored for the Spanish speaking community.

Both culturally and linguistically appropriate, LISTOS will provide a foundation for building disaster resilience in the growing Spanish speaking population in the county. Engaging in this training are individual residents as well as staff from Catholic Charities, Department of Emergency Management, Nuestra Comunidad, Sonoma Valley Community Health Center, and Sonoma County Library.

This is the first time LISTOS has been presented in the county. Once certified, Trainers will be developing class offerings throughout the county.
