The Department of Emergency Management for the Town of Monroe is announcing another training program for persons interested in being part of a local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Training sessions will be held on two Friday evenings and two Saturdays in October and November. Most of the training sessions will be held at the Monroe Senior Center at 235 Cutlers Farm Road.
This class is for you! Become trained to help your family, friends, neighbors and the community as you actively assist Monroe’s Emergency Services during emergencies such as snow storms, floods or natural and man-made incidents. Monroe Emergency Management Director (EMD) David York said that “In the months since CERT volunteers have been active, they have assisted at summer concerts in Wolfe Park, assisted at other events in town, also helped Newtown CERT with an activity there, and most importantly helped for many hours with sheltering townspeople at the Senior Center during our several serious storms and power outages. “ CERT members have provided assistance to our first responders since they have been trained and are able to help Monroe Police, Fire, Volunteer Emergency Medical Services (VEMS) along with shelter personnel, as well as residents and neighbors when a disaster strikes.” Click onto "more" for additional information.
