CERT Support Requirements
Navarre CERT can provide support at any community event when the event presents an opportunity for the team to exercise the skills for which we've trained, particularly organization, communications and teamwork. If the event presents an opportunity for us to distribute emergency preparedness information, we will also set up an information booth.
Request for Community Assistance must be received at least one month in advance of the event! All members of Navarre CERT are volunteers with busy lives and cannot participate in every event. Therefore, prior planning is critical.
Navarre CERT WILL NOT AND CAN NOT substitute for Sheriff's personnel or EMT's / paramedics. However, we gladly assist them WHEN and IF they ask us to.
Our members are all volunteers and we get many requests for our services. Although we regret it, we cannot say "Yes" to every request. The farther in advance of your event you submit your request, the more time we have to organize the necessary personnel and make a good operations plan. We normally do not support an event unless its proceeds go to a good cause (e.g., a charity) or benefit the public as a whole.
You may submit your request in one of two ways:
