On November 16, 2019, from 09:00 – 12:00, Martinez CERT will be part of a county-wide exercise to test our radio communication links all the way from local CERT teams to the CoCo County Emergency Operations Center. This exercise will give all of us an opportunity to practice how we would organize in a major event and how well we can communicate up and down the chain. If you would like to participate, please contact one of the coordinators listed in this post.Read More
Our final CERT Training exercise was held at the lovely and spacious Community Center in Brentwood on Saturday, 26 October. Everyone who needed help were rescued and treated with our first aid skills. Fires were extinguished, cribbing was built and bodies moved to safety, and paperwork was completed.
Well done, new CERT volunteers!
