We had a blast completing our traffic control efforts for the Kaysinger Basin Pioneer Heritage Association for Warsaw Pioneer Heritage Days on October 16th and 17th!
Thank you to Assistant Coordinator Ranita Jones, Finance Officer Tim Giedd, CERT members Margo Kirk and Bob Hayes, and Teen CERT member Alex Cason (our gopher!) for giving time throughout the weekend to assist Camden County EMA Director Sam Henley with this new opportunity!
The job will be a bit more challenging next year because the road across Truman Dam will be open. The road across the dam is currently closed for construction, so the CERTs were able to create a single choke point to easily control access to the Truman Dam Visitor’s Center. We were able to keep traffic moving smoothly while clearing the way for the courtesy buses, shuttles, and UTVs (nicknamed Hot Wheels for the event by our CERTs!) throughout the event!
Scott Mills, President of KBPHA, was so impressed by the professionalism, courtesy, and great attitudes of the CERT, we have been invited back to serve as traffic control for Heritage Days next year!
Camden County, MO CERT is ALWAYS seeking volunteers who would like the chance to serve their communities, take part in events, help our neighboring counties and CERTs, and enjoy the camaraderie of a great group of people!

We look forward to more new and unique opportunities in the future!
