When your community needs help, that help could be you

If you, and a group of friends or colleagues are interested in contributing to public safety in your community, talk to your local or county emergency management director about forming a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). CERT members receive about twenty hours of basic training, and then support local public officials during emergencies. CERTs in Maine help direct traffic, run shelters and take care of animals in emergencies. Could this be your special way of helping your community?
