Our spring drill will take place on June 16, 2018 at 10000 Brecksville Road (VA hospital property)

Chief Zamiska has generously given CERT access to the VA property on June 16 from approximately 8:30-Noon. More details about the drill will be given here and through email but our plan is to provide all participants with lunch. One item we know for sure is that we have to comply to a set of rules, one of which is a signed liability waiver for each drill participant Please complete the pre-registration form.
