The long GRB 221124A (GECAM Trigger #79; IPN RAW Notice at
02:00:24.17 on 24 November) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray Burst
Monitor (CGBM) at 02:00:24.88 UTC on 24 November 2022
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a multi-peaked structure that starts 
at T-58 sec and ends at T+~350 sec. We are not able to obtain 
the duration because of the scheduled HV turn-off started just 
after the end of the emission. 

The ground-processed light curve is available at

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at Waseda University.
