Are You CERT Certified Or A Licensed Amateur Radio Operator?
May 01, 2015 08:30AM
● By City of Taylorsville
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and the Taylorsville HAMnet have been largely revamped in the way that we will respond to emergencies. It’s very important for these volunteer emergency responders to have the activation and operating procedures in the event that CERT is needed in an emergency.
All currently certified emergency volunteers are invited to attend a training that will cover the changes to the program. The meeting will take place on June 11 at 7 p.m at Taylorsville City Hall (2600 Taylorsville Blvd.)
Additionally, the City of Taylorsville Emergency Management is working to make a collective roster of all CERT-trained volunteers and licensed amateur radio operators in the City. It’s important for us to have contact information to be able to activate CERT in an emergency and promote training events.
If you have already completed your CERT training or if you have a valid amateur radio operator license, visit the Emergency Preparedness page of the City’s website at www.taylorsvilleut.gov/emergency_preparedness.main.html to submit your information. If you have not completed your training but would like to, you can find information about how you can also from the City’s website.
With any questions, please contact the City’s Emergency Manager, Ben Gustafson, at 801-963-5400 or [email protected].
