CERT Members Needed for Class Graduation Exercise

On March 11 and 12 from 6:00-9:00pm we will be conducting disaster simulation drills for our new class (we had to split the class in two because we have 30 people in the class). We could use at least 5 CERT members to assist us each night in the exercises.
Please email or call Joanne if you can assist. 954-797-1144 or
