We are Growing! In September and October, the team is actively recruiting for new members across the Lower Cape and to support this growth we have moved to a new space on the internet!
We have a new online membership application now available at our Join Us! page which will make becoming a member so much easier. On October 23rd, 2021 we have a new and provisional member training day where applicants can put their FEMA online training to work in hands-on exercises like Search and Rescue. This annual training day is required for all members to move out of Provisional Member status, so it is important that new applicants submit their paperwork before October 4th. Training spaces are limited and are assigned on a first come basis.
Don’t forget to check out our member calendar for up and coming training dates. We have a Safety Leader training coming up for any member who wishes to provide safety support at any of our deployments. Anyone who is interested should inquire with Joanna at email@example.com as training space is limited and there is a practical required for full certification. An email with more information will be sent out to the team as the dates approach.
For any team members who wish to support our recruitment drive, please email Corey at CBarker@boch-cert.org to get information, flyers, business cards and other recruiting materials. Corey has been spearheading the recruitment drive and has plenty of swag and ideas for you to help.
We have plenty of exciting new features coming to our new website, so keep your eyes on the blog for information on roll outs. Next up, we will be expanding our member and public training page to include the FEMA training links for easier onboarding and to help us all refresh before an emergency deployment.
Thanks to everyone who waited patiently as we migrated to our new home on the internet, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
