Light Up the Bay in Martinez

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.
