2016 Countywide Update

Date(s) - 10/28/2016
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

PG&E - Kendall Road



Last October, several outreach emails were broadcast throughout the County inviting anyone interested in a countywide CERT program.  There was an incredible turnout, much more than anyone expected.

As a result of that meeting, several attendees agreed to meet and decide where a countywide CERT program should have a role in our community.  This group was comprised of public safety officials, local business owners, local government employees, people from the general public, and so on.  Basically, we could not have asked for a more appropriately diverse group of individuals.

Now that a year has passed, they felt that it was time to give everyone an update.  In this short timespan, you will be surprised what has been accomplished!
