St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2019

On Sunday, March 10, 11 Anne Arundel-Annapolis Community Emergency Response Team (AAACERT) members served as City Parade Marshals for the 7th annual Annapolis St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

As City Parade Marshals, AAACERT members serve as the city’s eyes and ears, helping authorities to keep the event safe by ensuring crowds stay clear of the parade elements, and participants engage safely. Not content to be mere safety spotters, many AAACERT members also sported first aid kits, standing ready to step in with immediate assistance if needed.

Parades serve as excellent opportunities for AAACERT members to practice their crowd management, emergency communication, and incident response training. AAACERT is the only volunteer group that is certified by the City of Annapolis to work as parade marshals.
