Paint work bees were scheduled for June 29th and July 21st to paint the interior and the floor of the CERT trailer as the first part of the interior project. Sgt. Patchin is heading up a committee that will be working on finishing off the inside of the trailer and will provide secure storage places for CERT equipment and supplies including mounting white dry-erase boards, putting in a built-in pull down desk with areas for radios/communications and specific mounted storage for the generator and canopy tent. Thank you to Sgt. Patchin, Officer Shannon Fick, CERT members John Ellis, John Klein, Michael Briggs and Bob Barber for helping to complete the painting!!
If you are interested in becoming a CERT member, Gerrish Township Police Department will be running a basic CERT class this fall. Please contact Chief Hill to sign up, class size is limited so reserve your space now!!
