Tonight is a special night. The Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management is kicking off its 2009 training schedule with CERT classes in Meadows Place. This eight week training course provides a perfect opportunity for citizens to learn about emergency preparedness. With this knowledge, graduate of the course will be better able to protect his or her family during a disaster. Equally as important, graduates of the CERT Training Program will be able to assist others in their own neighborhood. The recovery efforts performed by Fort Bend County citizens during and after Hurricane Ike illustrate the importance of the CERT Program and its focus on neighbors helping neighbors.
