Rabies POD Exercise Help
The Santa Rosa County Health Department is conducting a "Rabies POD (Point of Dispensing) Exercise" on October 4th, at Animal Control Services, which is located next to the Santa Rosa County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) on Pine Forest Road in Milton.
Navarre CERT has been asked if any volunteers wish to help out at this event. This is a great opportunity to participate in the operation of a POD, emulating one of the many possible details we may be asked to assist in during an emergency situation.You have 2 options available:
Option 1 – Assist in the set-up beginning around 1230 p.m. at Animal Control on Pine Forest Road and remain for the duration of the exercise which should end between 6-7:00pm.
Option 2 – Participate in the actual event from 4-6 p.m. Please be at Animal Control on Pine Forest Road no later than 3:30 p.m.
Due to the late notification, you can email the coordinators of this event directly for more information.
Our next team meeting will be held on September 25, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. (1800 hours) at the Holley-Navarre Senior Center, 8476 Gordon Goodin Lane, across the street from the Navarre Library. All CERT members are STRONGLY encouraged to attend. Visitors are also welcome, but we ask that you email our Coordinator for more information.

2019 Hurricane season is now active.
The 2019 hurricane season started on June 1. Do you remember what happend last October a mere 75-100 miles east of Navarre?
Do you have a plan? It's never to early to start getting prepared. It only takes one direct hit to be a bad hurricane season.
Lou Green Retires from CERT
Since joining in 2005, Lou has served in many roles. For the past several years, he has been the Board President, Chairman, Coordinator, Secretary, and Treasurer.
At our May meeting, Navarre CERT held a pot-luck dinner to honor Lou and thank him for his thousands of self-less volunteer hours. The Santa Rosa County Commisioners also present Lou with a Certificate of Service at a recent Board meeting.
Lou Greene, we will miss you! Thank you for your leadership and guidance. Good luck in your retirement!
