June Newsletter

Welcome to June CERT Family!

We all know that June brings the start of Hurricane Season.  Please make sure you are ready in case a storm comes this way.  Knowing that you have a plan in place before the storm will help you greatly once the storm hits.  Here are a few helpful hints from our friends at Ready.Gov on being ready for a storm.

If you would like to help your friends prepare, we will be sharing helpful tips using our social media platforms.  Please feel free to share those tips with your friends.  Also, if you know someone who has moved into the area, please talk to them about preparedness.  Most people don't start preparing until the storm is in the Gulf. Here is a link to our Facebook page.

We've Been Busy! 

May was a busy month for GCCERT!  We served our community during a weather event, a barge accident, Operation Safe and Sound,  and many other community events.  Thanks to all who served the citizens of Galveston County this month.
