American Legion CERT Class
On October 26-29, Bob George Citizen Corps Program Manager and Marny McLee Citizen Corps Training and Outreach Coordinator and the State CERT Instructor team with assistance from the Wilmington OEM taught a CERT Class for the American Legion at the Middletown Post #25. Citizen Corps and the American Legion are National Affiliates, and at the National Level have an MOU signed. Delaware is in the final stages of having a MOU at the state level, signed and approved. Currently Citizen Corps and American Legion are now working at the local level in order to get all posts in DE and surrounding communities CERT Trained. Don White Jr, Past Adjunct for the American Legion was instrumental in coordinating the scheduling of the class. Citizen Corps will be scheduling a Train-the-Trainer class in the near future with the Legion so they can go throughout the State and their Legions to teach the course.
