Last Wednesday, 10 members from the Gerrish Township CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) met for one of their annual trainings. They went over CERT Trailer Operations and Set Up and reviewed supplies and equipment that are housed in the trailer.
The CERT Trailer is kept at the Gerrish Township Police Department and is available for deployment when needed to assist the Gerrish Twp. Police, Fire, EMS, Roscommon County Sheriff’s Office, other local, state and federal agencies when needed. CERT members are volunteers and are trained in Search & Rescue, Disaster Preparedness, Fire Safety & Extinguishing, Patient Triage & Assessment, Patient Treatment & Hygiene, Team Organization, Disaster Psychology & Terrorism, Incident Command and Radio Operations.
