CERT trailer unveiled during dedication

Posted

At a July 18 dedication, fire chief Christopher Carleton and volunteers from the Point Roberts Emergency Preparedness group and the Community Emergency Response Team unveiled a trailer well on its way to being a rolling shelter operation and command center.

“This trailer will provide additional communications options and community support during emergency and non-emergency operations, community events and training,” Carleton said.

Under the direction of assistant fire chief John Shields, the trailer has been equipped with three HAM radios on different frequencies and a generator to allow communication with county emergency services. The trailer, acquired for the department by PREP through a grant from Puget Sound Energy, also holds tents, food and other shelter supplies.
