New Milford CERT training on August 30th 2020 to support drill with fire departments in the towns of New Milford, Brookfield, Washington, Sherman.
CERT was invited to participate in a fire training exercise with several of our local fire departments. This was a great opportunity for us to train, provide support and put the CERT Van into operation. CERT met at the Water Witch Fire House at 8:30 AM in New Milford and then followed the WWHC to the training exercise location finishing about 1:00 PM.
CERT’s role was to set-up a canteen on-site at MEDInstill to help provide accountability and a rehabilitation location with coffee, water, ice, and snacks to everyone training.
CERT Chief Valerie Truesdell was the incident commander for the entire duration of the training.
