Ten CERT volunteers pitched in this weekend to help set up two emergency shelters and two awning tents for use by members of the Lenoir Amateur Radio Club (LARC) for their annual 24-hour Field Day. The event was held at Redwood Park in Hudson, NC. LARC joined clubs across the nation in staying online and on the air with the goal of making as many contacts as they can for points, educate the public about HAM radios, and prepare to be able to assist their communities during disasters. Several LARC members are also members of CERT. Caldwell County Emergency Management and CERT are happy to be of assistance to these valuable members of the community.
Kenneth Teague, Caldwell County Emergency Management Coordinator and the following CERT volunteers assisted this weekend.
