“Prepare as if your life depends upon it, because it does!”

Using a Nationally published FEMA curriculum, CERT educates individuals at the local level 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, triage and disaster medical operations. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can protect their family first, and then others in their community following a disaster, storm, major fire or other emergency when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also assist in searches for lost persons, particularly children.

 

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.
