Newport Beach CERT volunteers,
There has been some confusion regarding the Orange County Operational Area CERT exercise scheduled for Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 8:00 am-4:30 pm. This exercise is open to all active Newport Beach CERT volunteers, you do not need to be a CMAP volunteer to attend. At this time, Newport Beach still has openings and we will also be creating a wait list for any Newport Beach CERT volunteer that would like to attend. The information on the exercise is listed below, if you would like to participate please email firstname.lastname@example.org by January 2nd. Also, if you are planning on attending the 11th annual State of CERT Awards Banquet scheduled for Wednesday, January 30, please register as soon as possible but not later than January 18. If you would like to assist with planning, logistics or set-up for the annual banquet please email email@example.com. Lastly, if you have not already done so, please remember to enter all of your CERT volunteer hours for all of 2018 prior to the end of the year. If you have problems entering your hours, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your total.
We hope that you all have a wonderful and safe holiday season.
