Thanks to the generous support of the First Annual Holmes Harbor Benefit Golf Tournament, our Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is now able to supplement needed equipment and supplies, and team members are currently engaged in doing some comparative shopping for these items. Of course no one knows how soon the team might be called upon to engage in activities they’ve been trained for, but the fact that they will now be better equipped to perform these tasks is very much appreciated.
PLEASE NOTE: in the event of a major earthquake, normal services are not likely to be resumed for an indefinite period. The electric grid in particular could be out for several weeks, here and on the mainland. For this reason alone it will be up to individual families to store food and water and any essential personal items in advance ...like now! CERT does not have, and will not have, any relief packages of food or water. The team is responsible for first aid and rescue help where possible, and for assessing where the areas of greatest need are in order to direct the professionals when they arrive on scene
Scientific evidence indicates that a magnitude 8.0 to 9.0 earthquake will occur along the 800-mile long CSZ fault that extends from a point in northern California north past Vancouver Island. Conducting successful life-saving and life-sustaining response operations in the aftermath of a major disaster will hinge on the effective coordination and integration of services at all levels. The Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) earthquake and tsunami recently mentioned in the news will be one of the most complex disaster scenarios that emergency management and public safety officials will face here.
