CERT Members:

Tonight, June 11th we will be conducting the first test of the revised Everbridge Alert system for those of you who have undergone the Live Scan Police Background checks. There are several important issues associated with the test you need to be aware of.

    The message is being sent to your cell phone, home phone, text and email.
    The system will ask you to acknowledge receipt of the message.
    Once you acknowledge receipt of the message, the system will STOP trying to contact you, so if you acknowledge the first form of contact, the others forms of contact will not be used.
    PLEASE ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO MAKE CONTACT WITH YOU THROUGH ALL FORM TO INCLUDE CELL PHONE, HOME PHONE (If you have a home phone), TEXT AND EMAIL PRIOR TO ACKNOWLEDGING RECEIPT OF THE MESSAGE SO WE CAN BE SURE ALL YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION IS ENTERED INTO THE SYSTEM.

Please send me a follow-up email only IF you do not receive the alert on all the different formats.

CERT Members:

Your Monterey CERT program will be holding a radio drill on Monday June 11th at 7 P.M. All CERT members are requested to report to their neighborhood Zone Containers at that time. You will be able to participate in making radio reports to CERT Command on a simulated Earthquake and see how your container will activate in an emergency. If you have your own radio, please bring it.

Thank-you for your commitment to CERT and our community!

 

A great presentation from the Red Cross about the rise of use and dependence on Social Media in Disasters and Emergencies. Read it here…

“50% of people who use social media would use Facebook to share that they were safe. 70% say emergency agencies should monitor social media postings (e.g. Facebook/Twitter). And, of course younger people are far more likely to use social media.”

Read it here and share your thoughts…
