Happy Summer! School may be out for the kiddos but CERT has a couple more activities before we take our summer break!
Points of Distribution Exercise
Wednesday, June 22 – 6:00-8:30pm
Norwalk Armory, 400 West Main Street, Norwalk
A key volunteer task in disasters is the quick, and organized distribution of goods to the community. Depending on the incident, this could include bottled water, flood clean up kits, food, or other necessary supplies. CERT is key in ensuring this distribution takes place efficiently and safely. This exercise will provide volunteers with basic training on operating drive-thru distribution points and is offered in conjunction with the Ohio Military Reserve. The exercise will include 1 hour of classroom training followed by a 90-minute exercise.
Sign up for this exercise by Monday, June 20 so we can plan for materials and copies.
Community Safety Days
Saturday, June 25 – 10:00am – 2:00pm
Wal-Mart, 340 Westwind Drive, Norwalk
CERT will staff an information booth to distribute disaster preparedness information at Wal-Mart in Norwalk as part of the store’s annual Safety Days event. We’d like to have 2 volunteers at all times but you don’t have to sign up for the full 4 hours. The schedule can be divided into 1 or 2 hour blocks if that fits your schedule better. If you can cover any time on June 25, please let us know!
Thank you to everyone who helped with events in May and early June. Between the Walleye Run 5K and Flagship Collaborative Play Place construction event, we had amazing turn out. Thanks for continuing to make North Coast CERT a great team!
