Local volunteers who help first responders in times of emergency are hoping to get more people involved, not only to help the community, but primarily to ensure the safety of their own families.
That’s Lori Favilla from the Camden County Community Emergency Response Team. CERT is currently looking for members. The course teaches you disaster preparedness, how to build your survival kits for your family, basic first aid, and more. And though Favilla says some members have prior training, it’s not at all a requirement.
The Camden County CERT Team will be holding an open house Monday evening beginning at 5:30. For more information contact Lori at 573-746-0717.
