Bowie area CERT class...
I know there are a lot of Bowie area members to the AARC club, so hopefully this isn't too off topic...
CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is a certification that individuals can receive. It involves many levels of community emergency response, and disaster preparedness. Bowie, MD has started a CERT team, and anyone living in the Bowie Area is welcome to come to the meetings and sign up for the training. Here's the text from a flyer from the Bowie CERT team organizer... 73s N3USP
