Political signage guidelines

Municipal district elections are set for November 8 and residents are free to display signs on their property indicating which candidate they support before, during and even after elections. That said, the city reminds residents that political signs may not be placed on public property or within public rights-of-ways. Call (909) 399-5499 or review municipal code (section 18.015.030.F) at for more info.

CERT Training around the corner

Next month, Claremont’s Community Emergency Response Team and the Los Angeles County Fire Department will host seven trainings meant to prep locals for natural disasters. The seven-course curriculum will span four weeks and begins September 12.

Each training will be held at the Alexander Hughes Community Center’s Padua Room, 1700 Danbury Rd., between 6 and 9 p.m. The only exception will be the course’s final review and drill test, which will be held on October 1 at the center beginning at 9 a.m. The exam is overseen by CERT and LACFD personnel.

The educational courses are free, but class sizes are limited. Email to enroll. Students who enroll must complete all hours of the course to receive a certificate of completion.
