Sacramento CERT assists FEMA CA TF7 and CalOES teams deployment to Hurricane Florence




On 9/11/2018, Sacramento CERT assisted FEMA’s California Task Force 7 members deploy a water rescue team to Hurricane Florence.  In the late hours of September 10th and into the early morning hours of September 11th, CERT members worked to issue the team’s protective gear, personal equipment, radios, HAZMAT gear, and manifest the team in preparation for deployment.

At 7pm on 9/11/2018, Sacramento CERT was again activated to deploy a 2nd water rescue team – this time a team from CalOES.  We wish both teams safe journeys and safe operations while on station, and look forward to receiving them home after their mission is complete.
