CERT needs a volunteer or two to come in regularly and check and start the equipment we have on the equipment trailer. This includes the generators, chainsaws, radios, etc. to ensure they are operational in the case of an emergency.

We are overhauling manuals, incident action plans, and other plans used by the EMA/CERT/ARES which need more than one pair of eyes on them for updates. If this sounds like something you would like to help with, come on in and work with us!

A huge part of this effort will be focused on locating and establishing staging locations for CERT around Camden County. We would like this task completed before Summer 2023.
