Shared from RICHLAND ARES CERT

Congratulations to the first group of Richland ARES members to join the Richland County Communications Emergency Response Team (CERT).

An important role for ARES is to help with emergency communications of “served agencies.” Richland County Emergency Services is certainly a served agency that we want to be able to help when the need arises. This group has completed established prerequisite requirements to work in the Richland EOC and assist with emergency communications. We look forward to learning to operate communication systems in the Richland EOC and we are exploring other opportunities to collaborate with Richland County Emergency Services.

If you are interested in joining this group, there will be additional opportunities. Please contact Mark, KN4KRZ, at goddard.mw@gmail.com.
