Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Community resiliency and preparedness for disasters, emergencies and local crisis events.

Citizen engagement in preparedness programs and services.

We have numerous programs which offer citizens the opportunity to make a personal impact on their own preparedness, and that of the larger community.

We offer CERT classes twice annually, in February and August. Many folks sign up, but never follow through with the training. We all have a personal responsibility to be prepared.
