Good afternoon, all!
Rod and I were on a conference call with Region F about the Mass Vaccination Event. The weather has put a bit of a monkey wrench into our plans and the National Guard’s battle rhythm for the region.
I had to get to other things we are arranging and rescheduling, so Rod will bring us information when the call is completed.
In the meantime, we have rescheduled the food we ordered for the volunteers, first responders, and nurses/vaccinators to the new date (see Press Release from Lake Regional Health System), we have also rescheduled our Community Emergency Response Team Volunteers, as well as the delivery of an additional 100 delineators (tall traffic cones) we are being provided with via MoDOT, and MORE! PHEW!
We have a CERT volunteer working hard with Buzzer to put together some informational bags for the event which will contain information from the EMA about identity protection, CERT, emergency preparedness, and the Camden County Health Department Frequently Asked Questions page.
Later this evening, our CERT Coordinator, Tim George, and CERT members will be packing the CERT trailer with everything we think we will need to provide a warming area for the first responders and guardsman on traffic control, including heaters, tables, chairs, snacks, etc.
After that, our CERT members will have radio communications training tonight because we feel that you can never practice and train enough when it comes to communications!
Stay tuned for more updates!
