Remember that the OSSBN is now starting at 6:15 due to poor band conditions. You are asked that if you have traffic be on frequency on time a prepared to pass your traffic. At this time an attempt will be made to pass all traffic prior to having role call and before the band goes long. Everyone should also be on frequency by 6:15 and prepared to take traffic. Those able to hear weak stations will be needed to relay traffic and thanks you all for doing so. As the band improves, we are able to have a role call and comments some evenings. With the cancellation of the Mansfield Midwinter Hamfest the Ohio Single Sideband Net is once again going to have to find a way to hold their next meeting. Keep tuned in and checking into the OSSBN for discussions and updates on the next meeting. Maybe this will be fixed by the new Covid vaccinations. The Ohio Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. CERT offers a consistent approach to volunteer training and organization that professional first responders can rely on during disaster situations, which in turn, allows responders to focus on more complex tasks. The CERT program was designed as a grass root initiative and specifically structured so that local and state program managers have the flexibility to form their CERT programs in the way that best suits their communities. • Citizen Corps works through a national network of state and local Citizen Corps Councils, if local communities choose this advisory option, then leaders from law enforcement, fire, emergency medical and other emergency management, volunteer organizations, local elected officials, the private sector, and other community stakeholders that serve as an advisory board. • Local Citizen Corps Councils implement Citizen Corps programs. These programs may include CERT, Medical Reserve Corps, Neighborhood Watch, Volunteers in Police Service, Fire Corps and other affiliate programs that provide opportunities for special skills and interests. They also organize special projects and community events. • For CERT programs not endorsed by a local Citizen Corps, the program must be sponsored by a local emergency response organization such as a local fire department or emergency management office. • Citizen Corps affiliate programs expand the resources and materials available to states and local communities. They do this by partnering with programs and organizations that offer resources for public education, outreach and training; represent volunteers interested in helping to make their communities safer; or offer volunteer service opportunities to support first responders, disaster relief activities and community safety efforts.
