SINCE 2014, IT IS THE OLCERT MISSION TO:
- Educate…ourselves and our community to increase emergency preparedness
- Train...in personal and public safety disaster preparedness
- Prepare...ourselves, families, and neighbors to assist and support each other to better withstand emergencies and hazards
- Assist...government responders during situations where the number and scope of incidents may overwhelm conventional emergency service.
OLCERT FOCUSES ENERGIES IN TWO AREAS:
- First, there is the Response Team is trained in search and rescue techniques and organizational procedure to augment overwhelmed government services in time of disaster.
- Second, CERT focuses on Community Outreach to provide education and outreach programs to strengthen our neighborhoods such as the 2017 Emergency Preparation Fair and the Emergency Water Program.
In cooperation with the Oak Lodge Water Services District, OLCERT administers the Emergency Water Program. OLWS has provided a number water systems known as the Hurricane® or Hurricane Pro® that to can purify up to 135 and 163 gallons respectively of water per hour under optimum conditions. OLCERT has recruited Water Stewards in OLWS neighborhoods to host the systems. In the event that the regular water supply is interrupted, these neighbors will have a drinking water source.
