Osceola County C.E.R.T. Gets New Equipment Courtesy of Fremont Area Community Foundation

Thanks to a gracious grant award from the Fremont Area Community Foundation, Osceola County's C.E.R.T. program has new equipment that will help in boosting the team's capabilities to help Osceola County first responders with emergencies and special events.  

The grant for $3,300 has provided the team with traffic control equipment including 12 barricades, traffic wands, traffic cones, and team shirts for use on emergency scenes and special event traffic control.

On behalf of Osceola County Emergency Management, C.E.R.T., and the first responders and citizens we serve, we would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to the Fremont Area Community Foundation for helping us help first responders and the community!

The Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) is an emergency management program that harnesses the power of citizen volunteers to assist emergency services in lite duty assignments.  C.E.R.T. members are specially trained, equipped, and experienced to act as a force multiplier for police, fire/rescue, and other responders to help in community safety when needed.  In 2022, the Osceola C.E.R.T. assisted with hundreds of manpower hours to various public safety missions in our area!
