March and April 2023 Events
April 2023. Check out our Winlink page to find out more about our three-day exercise.The Winlink system gives our local partners the ability to communicate resource requests and important situational awareness information to county and state agencies, ensuring effective communication when it is most needed.
March 2023. NEMCo’s first ‘post COVID’ CERT course. The speed at which this class filled up is a testament to the desire of our community to get informed and involved. The class provides the base knowledge needed for community emergency response; covering the areas of fire safety, basic first aid, disaster medical operations, light search and rescue, and much more. Lessons are presented in an easy to understand, step-by-step process, with a follow up hands-on training building on these lessons over the following weekend. After this 24-hour course, participants are invited to join their local CERT and continue to further this skill set.
Anyone interested in volunteering or attending any further trainings or exercises, please remember to keep an eye on our Home page.
