CERT members wanted

The Glocester Emergency Management Agency is looking to recruit volunteers from all walks of life including men, women, students, working and retired persons, those with and without emergency response experience, and everyone and anyone who would like to assist fellow citizens in times of need. Volunteers with the Emergency Shelter Team and the Medical Emergency Distribution System Team will be prepared to dispense medicines, search for injured persons, assist professional responders and much more in the event of a disaster.

All volunteers receive free training and equipment, and will participate in emergency exercises and assist public safety responders when requested. The requirements to become a volunteer are to have a willingness to help and the ability to pass a criminal background check.
