Bradley Beach police organizing Community Emergency Response Team
The Bradley Beach Police Department and its office of emergency management will be organizing a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in September.
CERT is a national volunteer program and more than 100 teams have been formed in New Jersey since September 11th. Sergeant Stephen Fahnholz says its primary training is going to assist in areas where there is some type of disaster. Fahnholz also says CERTs will meet Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Police department officials say they are looking for approximately 50 volunteers.
Local CERTs were activated for an oil spill in Monmouth County and were used to search for the missing girl from Brick.
