As of May 10, 2016, Cy-Fair CERT’s Rapid Response Team (RRT) has been officially activated. The RRT is a response team with specialized training available to meet the needs and requests by the community and agency outreach. We have been using this response team for several months to respond to heavy rains and flooding in our area and working with the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department, the Red Cross and the Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. We have 18 people that already meet the additional training requirements for the RRT and expect to continue to grow and expand to meet more of the needs of our community. This team has long been a goal of Cy-Fair CERT’s so that we can use not only our CERT training, but our additional skills and knowledge, in a meaningful and useful way.
Congratulations to all of our RRT! Your hard work is much appreciated! If you would like more information about Cy-Fair CERT’s RRT, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
