Emergency Communications

We began DART training around 2008 with Dr. Kevin Elliot. DVM and we added the Pet Sheltering Component to the program in 2014.  Those active in our DART program initially receive 15-20 hour DART training from Dr. Elliot, DVM followed by any additional trainng opportunities that might arise.  All of our real world activations have involved pet sheltering but with the emergence of our SCSAR K9 Unit, our DART members are also receiving training for SAR based animal responses.  Below are activations that have involed our DART division:

Communications

About Communications

Many who comprised the initial foundation of this program were avid Ham Radio operators so naturally communications has been part of this program since its inception.  Communications are involved in all aspects of our program therefore, almost every activation this program has ever had involved our communications division.  In addition to involvement in all divisions of the CERT program, our Communications Unit has been deeply involved with numerous exercises and EOC activations.  Below are a few activations/request that highlighted the most utilized division of our program, Communications:
