New CERT Flood Response Trailer

Monmouth County plans to accept a new flood response trailer and associated equipment from the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (NJ OEM) at the Freeholders 12 July 2012 regular meeting.. The trailer is being received by the county's OEM for the benefit of Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) operations within Monmouth County.

The 2012 United trailer and equipment are being provided for free to the county through the New Jersey State Citizens Corps Council, the local branch of FEMA's Citizens Corps.

The resolution does not say whether the county will operate the new trailer on behalf of local CERT teams or if they will lend it out to them as needed for flood emergencies. Presumably our local CERT coordinators will be apprised of its availability in coming weeks and told of their options for its use.
