February 2018

CERT Family,

Welcome to February!  

Thanks to everyone who attended our New Year kick off banquent.  Our New Year kick off banquent was a huge success! A very special  thanks to our Captain, Karen Booren for setting up this great event.

This year we start with a focus on adding volunteers to our team.  Our newest CERT Academy starts 2/6/2018 in Clear Lake Shores.  If you know of anyone who wants to be part of our incredible team, please ask them to sign up here.  Details can be found at the link.

Also on February 6th, our CERT Administrator, John Herrmann, will be speaking at the Clear Lake Shores City Council Meeting.  There he will present an award to the Clear Lake Shores Team for outstanding work during Hurricane Harvey.

Our CERT Rodeo Team still needs more participants.  The day of the rodeo is 2/10.  This is a great opportunity to show off your CERT skills.  Please sign up here if you are interested.  This is a great event but we still need at least 6 more volunteers.

We are offerring an Advanced First Aid Course during February.  If you have not taken this course, or if you want to retake it, this is a good opportunity to fine tune those first aid skills.  More details and the sign up for this course can be found here.

Our second CERT Academy of the year will be in April at Texas A&M in Galveston.  If you know someone who might want to take this class, then ask them to sign up soon!  This course normally fills up quickly.  Dates and sign up information can be found here.

This year, largely due to the unprcedented response to Hurricane Harvey, our Galveston County CERT program received a Presentendial Lifetime Acienvement award.  Congratulations to all of you who took part in making this award a reality.

Our lifetime achievement award was acheived by everyone on our team.  This year we've seen record attendance at events, trainings, drills and meetings.  Due to our amazing success the Galveston County Commisioniers Court would like to honor our team. On Febrary 12th, at 9:30 AM. County Judge Mark Henry and our county commisioners will honor our team with an award.  If you can attend, please make sure you wear your CERT shirt.  This will be at 722 Moody Street in Galveston.  

We know this will be another amazing year of public service,  please look over the calendar for future events.


Doris & John Herrmann
