Most of our role is to coordinate between agencies. This week we worked alongside Carolina Beach Fire Department, NHRMC EMS, Duke Energy, and NCEM to practice and exercise hazmat response plans.

Fall 2021 Community Emergency Response Team Basic Training Program is a wrap. This was the first class we have conducted since March 2020. This was a wonderful hard working class if students. A special thanks to Captain Kevin McDonald and Captain Blake Turner for your continued support of this program. You guys were awesome! I would like to welcome the newest member to our team, my co-worker Audrey Hart who played a one of our many victims in today's simulated exercise. Thank you for your support for anything that is needed. I am excited as we head into the new year to see where we can take this program.
