All Things C.E.R.T.

Hi, I am Mark and I am a C.E.R.T. member in the Houston area.

          The reason I am starting this blog is to discuss all things C.E.R.T.  I am interested in new products and procedures that will help me/us be better C.E.R.T. members in our communities.  I will also be discussing opportunities and ways to serve here in Houston and elsewhere.  I want this to be a teaching/learning spot so I will be asking questions (don’t worry there will be no test) about things we may have to do if we activate to help with an emergency or other volunteer opportunity.

           I am also a (non-medical) member of the Medical Reserve Corps, which is another great place to volunteer and receive training.
