More than 20 Reston area residents and employees completed the CERT Basic training Monday night! The training was conducted at the North Government Center & the Reston Library. Jim Raba, lead instructor, guided the class through the the FEMA curriculum and was supported by Kevin Mullins co-instructor, assisted by Jack Ledgerwood and Lani Young. Guidance was also provided by Steve Wiley & Mike Forgy from the Fairfax Co. Fire & Rescue Dept.

Special thanks go to Supervisor Catherine Hudgins, Hunter Mill District, and her assistant, Merrily Pierce (CERT 35). They arranged the classroom space, promoted the class to the community and are big supporters of the CERT program. Many of these team members have committed to attending the June exercise, so make sure you say hello and welcome them to CERT.
