Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)
CERT : Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)
I and my wife finished our training this evening and, with further home training, expect to be of some use in the event of a disaster ( likely flood or tornado in our area ) in our immediate neighborhood and elsewhere in the city if the need arises.
Our tax dollars at work......

funny, in the IT world
Welcome to the CERT Program
definitely a good idea, specifically in areas that are high risk from tornado/hurricane/fireHelicopters don't fly; they vibrate so much and make so much noise that the earth rejects them.

For at least the last two years I've been the official - Unofficial leader of the Crime Watch for my neighborhood. (approx 1500 homes)
Since no one else has signed up - we still don't have a group
Yet, I often get emails about upcoming training classes for nOObs... I finally talked them into letting me attend one in two weeks... Told em I'd break into a couple of homes if they didn't
Can't wait to hear what they say about my concealed handgun license

Basically, we're the first line of defense until the professional emergency dudes arrive on the scene. Yes, we do administer first aid but within the limitations of our ability. In other words , access the situations and provide care that will NOT make the victims injuries worse.
Document the scene and give assistance to the fire fighters and paramedics.
If the class was in a high risk area, I'd have my weapon and two extra clips on board.

"any location listed in subsection (13) of Section 45-9-101"
except any place of nuisance as defined in Section 95-3-1, any police, sheriff or highway patrol station or any detention facility, prison or jail.
Does that make it somewhat clearer ??

I think you're reading it wrong, because that is the same paragraph that also includes polling places, the state legislature, all schools, bars, restaraunts where alcohol is served, airports, and churches. Are you saying your permit allows you to carry within these establishments as well?
I could be reading it wrong. Legalese is not my best language.Good job, friend-of-friends!
