November 9 meeting: CERT

Please join us on November 9 at 6PM for a presentation by a member of the Community Emergency Response Team.     We will meet at Monroe Village, 1900 Central Ave NE.  There is plenty of free parking on Central Avenue and adjacent streets.

What it is:
CERT is an acronym for Community Emergency Response Team, a program that was created in response to President Bush’s call for citizen volunteers in the community.  This program provides training to members of the public to assist First Responders when natural or accidental disasters occur in their community.

From the website: People naturally respond to others in need…. One goal of the CERT program is to help respond effectively and efficiently without placing themselves in unnecessary danger.
The official Minneapolis website for our CERT program is here:

Our courtwatch list will get an upgrade from our City and County Attorneys’ offices.  We’ll be looking for your ideas on what to include in our FAQ and general description, posted on our home page.
