Statewide CERT Training

On December 9th and 10th, the State Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) conducted its end of year waiting list training in Smyrna. The class was held at the St. Poly Carps Church.
Citizens from Sussex, Kent and New Castle Counties attended, with approximately forty individuals receiving CERT training.

The class was made up of members of the State Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), Sussex County Civil Air Patrol (CAP), Del Tech- Terry Campus students, and Smyrna Police Department's Volunteers in Police (VIPS). Additionally, citizens from Smyrna, Wilmington, and New Castle, and a DEMA Staff member attended. The Smyrna/Clayton Times Newspaper and Smyrna Mayor Pat Stombaugh visited the training. Jack Dinge’e was the local point of contact for this class.

We would like to extend a special thanks to Father Thomas Flowers for offering his Parish for allowing Citizen Corps to conduct the training.
