Ward IV Gets into CERT Training

On Saturday, May 3, 2014 three individuals from Ward IV took the first of three classes for CERT (Community Emergency Response Training).  Who are these folks?  Well, one is yours truly, and the other two are the Ward IV councilmembers, Mickey Sandifer and Michelle Distler.  As a side note, the three of us are also graduates of the Shawnee Citizen's Police Academy (Distler 2011, Sandifer 2013 and me, 2012).  CERT volunteers are trained to assist the professional responders in major emergency situations (tornadoes, floods, major fires, search and rescue, etc).
