CERT POD Class—Feb 18 in Lenoir

This is a great opportunity for Caldwell County CERT volunteers to be trained on how to assist at a Point of Distribution (POD) Operations Center in the event of a serious emergency. POD centers are deployed to distribute life-sustaining food, water, and supplies when normal channels of distribution are unavailable. Here is a FEMA video that describes the basic operations of a POD.

To register for this free class, go to the TERMS website.

Please note that the FEMA course, IS 26, “Guide to Points of Distribution”, is a required prerequisite to taking this class. You may take this class online at the FEMA training website.
