Good Afternoon CERT!
It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had any team updates for you so Sandy and I wanted to reach out and share information about the training schedule for this month. First, welcome to all of our new volunteers! We had several new volunteers join us in January and we’re glad to have all of you with us. As of today you’ve been added to our email list and will receive all team communication.
Second, thank you to everyone who attended one of our January training nights. We had really great participation across all three counties. Each meeting focused on new ways for volunteers to participate in the team, essentially by choosing the types of response activities you want to be involved in. If you weren’t able to attend and don’t know what this is about, watch for the newsletter later this week. A complete explanation will be included there as well as posted on the website, Facebook page, etc.
Finally, an update on the training schedule for February. We’re going to deviate a little from our normal schedule. Here are the details:
Monday, February 8 @ 7:00pm
Perkins Township Administration Building, 2610 Columbus Ave, Sandusky
This training was originally scheduled for February 15, which is President’s Day. We’re moving away from scheduling training on official holidays so there will be no training this night.
Tuesday, February 16 @ 7:00pm
Huron County EMA, 255-B Shady Lane, Norwalk
Topic: Haz-Mat Awareness; Instructor - David Troike
As always, training RSVPs are appreciated but not required. Trainings are open to all volunteers regardless of your county of residence.
We hope to see many of you this month!
