Sachse Citizens, are you a CERT member?

Do you know what is meant by "72-hours"?

If not, ask a Sachse CERT member.

 

Sachse Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a group of citizens, organized as a neighborhood-based team that receives special training to enhance their ability to recognize, respond to, and recover from a major emergency or disaster situation.  Teams are trained by professional responders in areas that will help take care of themselves and others before, during and after a major emergency.
