The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
CERT QUARTERLY EXERCISE
SATURDAY JUNE 21st
As a part of the drill, we will be interacting with fire and ambulance crews and their equipment.
This is a deployment exercise. You will receive an E-Sponder notification alert at 8:30 a.m. on June 21st advising you of the Staging area location. Monitor your phones, e-mail and text for the alert. Please respond to the Staging area as requested, with your CERT helmet & vest. We will have an emergency with several scenarios. Questions contact:
NEW GOAL FOR CERT:
Your CERT Team Leaders have established a goal of obtaining a new trailer to greatly enhance our mobility and service in an emergency.
We will be formulating a detailed proposal to approach service clubs, insurance companies and other donors. The picture above shows the general concept. Our total funding goal for the trailer and all equipment should be approximately $10,000. The trailer will be equipped similarly to our CERT containers throughout the community.
