Having been frustrated with the lack of a means to connect and share with CERT volunteers in my town (without going through the local emergency management office) and not finding a forum on the web I decided to create a no-cost forum for CERTS in the United States to connect and share their knowledge, info, etc.

I just put it up this week so there's nor much yet, except a couple of posts and two files I uploaded. I will be adding more content.

If you are a CERT, please take a look, consider joining and participating in the forum.

Thanks,

Caps,
good to see. I am a CERT instructor in CA. I know there are a few FB pages.
Good luck

SCVCERT,

Thanks for the good thoughts. Have a couple of sign ups so far and I've post a few more files and some info posts.

My local EM officer has a FB page, but 99% of the posts are from them. Few of the CERTS post and what is posted isn't of much substance.

Hopefully the forum style format where CERTS can commo directly to one another will be more valuable to us volunteers.
