June 2018 Hurricane Season Begins

CERT Family,

Welcome to Hurricane Season 2018.  Like always we hope for the best, but plan for the worst. 

Please try to attend your local town hall meeting.  We will have CERT information at town hall meetings, but having you at the meeting helps us reach more people in the community.  Local town hall meetings are listed on this page at the office of emergency management.  Meetings are added constantly, so check back and let us know if your community meeting is not listed.

We have teamed up with FEMA to help our neighbors "Beat The Heat."  FEMA's #BeatTheHeat campaign is a national initiative to help everyone understand how to be prepared and handle extreme heat.  During the month of May, we posted #BeatTheHeat tips provided to us from FEMA.  By sharing these on your social media timelines you are helping your friends beat the heat.

CERT Monthly Meeting - June is a very busy month.  We will host our CERT meeting on June 6th at the office of emergency management.  Come join us for coffee and treats!    We will also have hurricane preparedness fliers for you to hand out in your place of business or neighborhood.  These fliers will have links to where community members can find evacuation routes, learn more about CERT and know where to find accurate information in a storm.

Active Shooter Drill -  We are assisting with an active shooter drill on June 20th.  This drill will take place in conjunction with Texas City ISD and Texas City Police Department.  If you would like to help out please sign up.


 Please continue to encourage your neighbors to be hurricane ready.  Attached you will find a "BeatTheHeat" flyer that you can print out and distribute in your workplace or neighborhood.


Thank you for all you do for our county,

Doris & John

Galveston County CERT
