In case you missed the orientation earlier this month regarding CERT, (Community Emergency Response Team) there is still time to sign-up. Our own Susy L will be one of the trainers for the class. Although the dates have not been set, if enough people sign up, the plan is to meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from mid-April through mid-May, from 7:00-10:30 pm. This does require a commitment of your time. Remember that CERT can prepare you to help yourself and your family in case of a disaster where first responders are delayed. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency situations where your action can make a difference.
The Public Issues Department received a request from the Herndon Fire Department to help them in their open house on April 22. More information will be provided in the near future.
