Yes, you read that right, CERTCON. This event is open to EVERYONE, not just CERT members.
The National Capital Region has been hosting a CERTCON since 2011. This year marks the second year it will be hosted by the National Capital Region CERT Consortium (NCRC) in conjunction with the DC Mayor’s office and ServeDC.
Some of the topics covered (including hands-on and interactive games):
- Be Prepared Kits and Plans for disasters such as tornados, hurricanes, floods, etc
- Communicating during a disaster
- Fire safety
- FEMA Be The Help Until Help Arrives
- Basic First Aid
- Mental Health First Aid

- AND MORE!
If you are not a member of a CERT, here is your opportunity to see some of the things a CERT member can volunteer to take part in while giving you the opportunity to speak to CERT members from around the region.
The three links below will provide more details about the NCRC, CERTCON, along with a flyer for this event.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
