EMA/CERT to Host Training for Homeland Security Assets in November!

As discussed in CERT’s Blog, the Camden County EMA and Camden County CERT will host a joint training/exercise on the two Homeland Security generators housed at the Camden County EMA.

This training is open to ALL First Responder agencies, Road and Bridge employees, and all CERT members. This is considered a high-priority training and we ask that all those who may work with the generators attend if able.

Training will be held on November 2, 2021 from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Camden County EMA located at 12 VFW Rd. Camdenton, MO 65020. Please wear closed-toe shoes and long pants, as you may be on, around, and under this equipment. Safety is our number one priority. The training is being brought to you by Norton Power Systems (NPS) who also oversees the generators for the jail and courthouse.

If this training is successful and we have the need to schedule additional dates to accommodate more individuals who need the training, we will be happy to do so!

Thank you to all agencies who participate in advance!

I became the Director of Camden County, MO Emergency Management Agency (EMA) in August 2021 after previously serving as the agency's Deputy Director for a year. As the Director, I manage the day-to-day operations of the EMA, work on the Local Emergency Operations Plan, manage the Facebook, Twitter, and website for the EMA, oversee the webpages for the Camden County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), provide oversight and run exercises for the Camden County, MO Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and work with the Camden County, MO Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). I hold a general class amateur radio license, call sign KE0LMY. I am also the official "Bee Keeper" of our mascot, Buzzer the Bee, who wants you to BEE Prepared!!! I'm a certified CERT trainer and WebEOC trainer for the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency. I maintain an EXTENSIVE and ever-growing list of credentials and train vigorously with first responder agencies, other EMAs, and with anyone I believe will help me become a better, more well-rounded emergency management director.
