CERT Olympics Needs Your Help!


Winter may be over, but the excitement, competition and fun of the XXI Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver lives on!


In the spirit of building skills, camaraderie and having lots of fun, the 2010 Annual CERT Exercise will be the `CERT Olympics', set to take place on Saturday, May 8th, at Tolt-MacDonald Park in Carnation. 


This multi-jurisdictional, annual event is tailor-made for teams who want to flex their CERT-muscles and use their `noggins, too.  Because it's also Mother's Day weekend, we will be honoring CERT Moms - your very first partner in safety and preparedness - with a special commemorative gift, and a chance to win a gift certificate for a dinner out! 


After the competition, we'll have an award ceremony and big, FREE BBQ with all of the fixings for CERTs and their families.  Families and CERTs will also be able to learn and explore safety and preparedness-themed demos and exhibits at the site.


Sounds like a great way to keep CERT-ification current, honor Mom and have some family fun on a Saturday, right?  Yep, we agree!


But… we need help.   To make all of this happen, we need volunteers, and invite you, (if you're not a competing CERT), to sign up to help make this a great event:
