Looks like great information and training. I am glad that I was able to attend the CERT course I went to. Need to do a refresher as soon as I am able to fit one in. Thanks for the pics and the info Justincase.

i let this one slip by. I need to attend a CERT refresher. How would we even know if a fellow PNW ZS was attending a CERT class next to us? We gotta call out if we are going and how to recognize each other.
