Community Emergency Response - Personalized

Sharon March 17th, 2009

Today’s AIP focus is on community issues - education, extended family, aging and retirement issues.  And in that spirit, I wanted to pass on a link that really impressed me, from Kathy Harrison’s blog.

 It is a description of how her community came together to do CERT training - but decided that they could organize themselves better than the existing CERT program provided for.  I was very impressed by this because I think it is easy to assume that the available templates for organization must be the best ones - and sometimes they may be.  But it is, I think, important to consider the downside of adopting a template as well, and ask the question “can I do this in a way that is better for me and my community.”
