Volunteers from all walks of life, coming together to help out our neighbors in times of celebration and emergencies.

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.

Be sure to let them know you are with Navarre CERT.

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

Lou Greene congratulated by the Santa Rosa County Board of Commisioners
Lou Greene, one of the founding members of the Navarre Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), has decided to retire and step down.  Lou has performed most of the administrative functions of CERT for the past 9 years.
