A follow up question here on CERT. Are any of your folks part of the CERT program? Is it worth it? My county has a CERT training for new volunteers coming up in January and I am thinking of doing it . Becoming part of the group will allow me to get to know some good folks too I think. Plus I have always been a community volunteer in various capacities my entire adult life pretty much. Small town New England is more or less run by volunteers. It is just part of the culture.
