EARLY 2023. CERT class

The NEMCo CERT Program provides periodic community training and information on local hazards and basic preparedness for events that include earthquakes, wind storms, snow events, floods, landslides and more. Classes are presented by first responders and trained CERT Community members in the areas of Fire Safety, Basic First Aid, Disaster Medical Operations, Light Search & Rescue, Utility Management and overall preparedness.

Nov. 2, 2022.  NEMCo held a non-technical but informative class to learn how to use FRS/GMRS radios (no amateur radio license required) to set up a Neighborhood Radio Group to communicate with your neighbors.  Flyer with additional information.
