This volunteer program is designed to augment our community’s operational capability following a large-scale emergency or disaster.
Volunteers who are interested will be given a basic core training class, advanced training, and educational opportunities to meet the mission of the South Windsor CERT. Much of the training and education will address disaster preparedness and response, as well as hazards that may impact our community. In addition, CERT members will learn organizational, practical, and decision-making skills, enabling them to offer immediate assistance to family members, neighbors, and associates, in the event of a disaster that overwhelms immediate response capabilities. All CERT members will be issued the necessary supplies, equipment, and uniforms upon completing their core training.
Applications can be obtained by clicking here and are also available at both the Town Hall, and the Police Department. If you would like more information, or are interested in becoming a South Windsor CERT member, please contact Walter Summers, [email protected] or call (860) 282-0669.
