FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — APRIL 3, 2013 –
As part of the annual awards ceremony for the West Sacramento police and fire departments this month, the WSFD honored a group of citizen volunteers who have trained as ‘CERTs.’
These “Community Emergency Response Team” volunteers are trained to help their families and community in the event of a community, and to support police and fire services.
Eight of West Sacramento’s CERTs were recognized at the ceremony for achieving “bronze” status — donating at least 100 hours of community service.
Another, Randy Frank,earned a “gold” award for exceeding 500 volunteer hours.
The fire department’s CERT program is about to begin another round of recruitment and training. See the back page of this week’s News-Ledger for information.
