Making North Iowa Safer

Hey yall, just thought I'd let ya know what we did this last weekend.

Momma an myself are members a the North Iowa CERT team (Community Emergency Response Team). We attended a search an rescue class on Friday night an then had a search and rescue exercise on Saturday.

Was cold an windy, but I think the whole team had a good day an learned quite a bit. Worked with our K-9 units an did to rescues.

We enjoy bein on the team alot. A good resource as we help out the area emergency agencies durin disasters an other emergencies when they get overwhelmed.

CERT is all volunteer an is a great way ta help out folks in the area.

Managed ta scare up a big buck in the woods as well as a wild turkey.

If ya get a chance ta join a local CERT team or just wan't ta know how ta take care of yerself an family in a emergency, check with yer local Emergency Manager. It be well worth it.

Good deal. For those of use that use the woods for our recreation it's a little more comforting to know there are people like you out there.

Here's what I think !

Glad to know that when I load up the family in the old Studabaker , that while visiting your parts of the state for some more moonshining business , that it's a safe area !

The CERT website be: CERT : Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) ya can search on there to see if there be one in yalls area.

Ya can also contact yer local emergency manager to see if they got a CERT team er some other organization in place. Ya can also start yer own CERT group to. A good organization an well worth the work it takes.
