Thirty-six Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro Community Emergency Response Team (SAW CERT) members gathered on Feb. 25 for their annual business meeting and an advanced training entitled, “CERT Tools for Leadership Success.”
The meeting featured a lively discussion about operating structure, impacts of the area’s November ice storm, potential training topics for 2019, and upcoming volunteer opportunities.
The advanced training session helped members sharpen leadership skills that are critical to providing essential support during emergencies and disasters when a community’s first responders and resources are stretched.
