Just wondering, I'm just wondering - how much money do you think CERT gets from the county? The amount would not make the difference you may think. Also, I agree that the Volunteer Fire Department needs funding but why should it come at the expense of another team meant to help our community in an emergency as well? Lastly, the grant funding that CERT does get does not take money away from other departments. Those departments would not qualify for the specific grants that CERT receives. If you are a volunteer in any capacity, I appreciate your service.
Holy run-on sentence, Batman! I certainly hope you don't have realistic aspirations of being a firefighter. I also highly doubt you have a really firm grasp of what a Community Emergency Response Team actually does. There is some excellent information available on the internet to help you a better understanding of what CERT's mission is.
What this county and its ISO rating DOES NOT need are volunteer firefighters.
