New CERT Emergency Shelter Class and Practice

Caldwell County CERT now has a mobile, 12′ x 16′ shelter available for use during emergencies. It is quick to deploy (15 minutes) and includes heat and air conditioning. On May 19, at 6:00 p.m. Kenneth Teague, Emergency Management Coordinator, will demonstrate how to deploy the shelter to our CERT volunteers. We will have the opportunity to get hands-on practice in putting up the shelter in the event we are needed during a disaster. All Caldwell County CERT volunteers are encouraged to attend.

When: Tuesday, May 19, 2015, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Where: Health and Human Services Building, 2345 Morganton Blvd, SW, Lenoir, NC in the parking lot. (Location will change in case of rain.)
